Default Re: Plaxico Burress Rumored to be Considered by Texans?

One thing about all this...IF the Texans at some point bring Plaxico in for a workout or try to sign him, the Texans will have an easier time (IMO) negotiating with Plaxico because they have stiff-armed him for basically all of last off-season and now well into training camp.

What we're telling him is that it is up to HIM to show how bad he wants to be here, and how genuine he would be in accepting a lower $$$ contract than what Plaxico might be wanting.

In short: String the guy out, let him sit and wait...and therefore use that as leverage and tell him "This is our offer and we won't accept a counter-offer from you or your agent. Take it or leave it. We're your best shot at another run for a ring."
