Default Re: Giants offering Plax 20 million!!!

I honestly cant cant believe Plax thought he was gonna command a 10 million bonus and all that cash in FA. He's a huge talent, but compared to the likes of Muhammed and others in the draft, he wouldnt have been my first choice either.

I think something is in the works w/ another team, otherwise the beagles wouldnt have just declined to comment, they would have flat out said NO, like the giants and vikes did.

I heard yesterday Cinci was on the short list of teams interested?? with Chad, Hush, Plax wouldn`t fit in there. I think some teams are waiting to see his price come down, and it has come down. But Dante is probably in Tices ear right now.

Is it true that the contract was offered over dinner, and Plaxico was ticked off about that, and thats when the deal went sour, thats what they said on ESPN

Plax isnt exactly the most well versed, and cordial individual and he can come off as a bit of an arrogant arse...which isnt bad always, but he just doesnt have the numbers to back up his desires money wise at this point.
