Plax Nears Settlement on Appeal

by: Michael Steffes

According to ESPN, Plaxico Burress is close to a settlement. He will still miss the game against the Seahawks, but will only owe half of the 235K in fines.

This is good news if you are hoping for the Seahawks to squeak out a win in NY. If you are Giants fan, it probably doesn't do much for your opinion of Plax. The guy just sat out considerable time in order to get a contract extension. He then misses meetings and doesn't inform the team, gets suspended, and then appeals the suspension just to get some money back. Nice.

Remember the cardinal rule folks: even when they say it isn't, it is always about the money. ~END~
