Assistant GM says nothing new on Burress contract front
ALBANY, N.Y. -- The agent for Plaxico Burress had talks with the New York Giants on Tuesday about getting a new contract for the star wide receiver.
Giants general manager Jerry Reese said assistant general manager Kevin Abrams spoke with Drew Rosenhaus.
Rosenhaus was at practice Tuesday night at the University at Albany with his brother, Jason.
Drew Rosenhaus did not want to comment on the talks while at practice.
Walking off the field, Abrams said nothing had changed, but he stood outside the team locker room after practice talking with the Rosenhaus brothers.
Burress, who caught the game-winning touchdown pass in the Super Bowl against the New England Patriots and led New York in receiving and touchdown catches last season, has three years left on a contract that will play him $3.25 million this season.
Terrell Owens of Dallas and Randy Moss of the Patriots signed contracts this past year that will pay them $9 million annually.
