New York Post: Plaxico Burress signed a five-year, $35 million
contract extension prior to the season, but that doesn't mean the
Giants are seriously committed to him for the future. is a
remarkably smart deal constructed by general manager Jerry Reese
and assistant Kevin Abrams, as the bulk of the money owed is not
guaranteed, and the Giants could get rid of him without suffering
debilitating salary-cap ramifications. According to various
reports, the Giants could cut or trade Burress after the season
and get $23 million taken off their books. The Giants knew Burress
was not the most responsible character and made sure they were
financially protected. There is $11.5 million in non-guaranteed
base salaries in his contract, non-guaranteed roster bonuses of
$3.5 million, non-guaranteed escalators of $5 million based on
performance and $1.3 million in non-guaranteed workout bonuses.
