Giants | Burress will be at camp Thursday but won't be happy
Mon, 21 Jul 2008 18:34:48 -0700

Mike Garafolo, of The Star-Ledger, reports New York Giants WR Plaxico Burress said he will be at training camp Thursday, July 24, even if he doesn't have a new deal by then. However, he won't be happy about it. "At the end of the day, it shouldn't have gotten to this point. It just shows me as a person how important I really am to them," Burress said.

Giants | Burress thinks team should have traded Shockey sooner
Mon, 21 Jul 2008 18:34:12 -0700

Mike Garafolo, of The Star-Ledger, reports New York Giants WR Plaxico Burress believes the team should have traded TE Jeremy Shockey, now with the New Orleans Saints, a lot sooner than today. "Why not? Why not have everybody go into a situation where they know what's what? He could have been in New Orleans learning the playbook and things like that. And for us, three days before training camp starts, you're trading an All-Pro tight end? Imagine how we feel," Burress said.

This interesting,

he does have a point in that Shockey should have been traded earlier, but those aren't necessarily the right reasons. there is always two sides to any trade anyways.

but this should be a big wake up call for Burress.

This is a team sport and unlike most other teams, with the Reese/Coughlin players must conform to what the team is doing, not the other way round, it doesn't matter who you are.

I think this is the right stance to take, but it will ruffle some feathers; either you are part of the team and on board with what the team is doing, or you are outta here.

The other side of the coin, is that the giants are quite ready to treat their players as farily as possible. unlike other teams, we sign our guys to contract extensions alot earlier. It isn't the top money at positions, but it is good money.
