Plaxico still doesn't want to "practico"
Speaking of diva NFL wide receivers, Plaxico Burress is holding out for a new contract. He is at the defending Super Bowl Champion New York Giants minicamp, but won't be on the field until his contract issues are resolved. Couldn't Plax have spoken out about these things a little earlier in the year? I guess that wouldn't create enough media attention. But at least this way, his teammates were all readily available to comment on the situation. Sean O'Hara did so today, and he doesn't think Plax is handling it the right way. He said, "I guess my feeling is it is a disservice to all the other guys out there working hard, and doing their jobs to focus on the negative. Sometimes we expect that, but there are a lot of guys out there doing good things every day. We have a lot of young guys getting a lot of good reps. That should be the focus."
