    I thought I'd post this just to ruin the fun for those who will post it and write.."I'm sure the Cowboys will sign him." There, now you don't have to....HA!:smiliedance:

    Didn't he just sign an extension before this past season? He ain't going anywhere.

    It may not be that big a hit to dump him:

    Only $4.5 mil of signing bonus. Most of the other guaranteed money may have been his salary for last year akin to what we did with Reeves. In any event, the Jags just dumped Drayton Florence and Joey Porter after one year so sometimes teams will do it.

    Has his self inflicted gunshot wound healed yet? IF so and he can still run I say give him some kevlar thigh pads and sign him. Andre needs help.

    Please no. This guy is a mess

    Walter had more receptions for more yards and more TDs than Burress did last year.

    One of them is a hard working competitor who thinks of the team. The other one is a selfish moron who disrupts the team chemistry.

    The guy is looking at jail time, how is that going to help any team much less the Texans?

    No one will deal for this piece of crap until the legal matter is over.

    NYG would be dumb to trade to a division rival. I could see a teams like Jacksonville, Seattle, and Minnesota going after him. I could even see Az letting Boldin walk and nabbing Burress.

    He's not on the market. Rosenhaus is just a tool.

    He's still under contract so he cant' up and leave, he would need to be traded and the Giants need him. They would be dumb to send him off unless they find a replacement.

    Good points, I had to rep you for that. NY wouldn't trade him to Dallas because they are in the division. That would be an excellent trade for the Cards and the Giants for sure. Both teams would benefit. Also Jacksonville would be a great destination for him, but Jacksonville won't do it, AND I"M GLAD. Seattle will most likely take Crabtree, so I don't see that happening, but Minnesota would be a good destination.

    This giant tree, standing 10,000 ft. high but not
    Boldin walk where? He's under a multi-year contract right? He can walk back to practice with the NFC Champs or back home to sit for the next few seasons...

    I see this as a big slap to NYG. They did what they could to support him, some want him back even and now he's asking to be traded. Every time I read idiocy of this magnitude involving a WR a say a thank you to our very own "Rainmaker"-Andre Johnson for being a dominant WR with a freaking brain in his head.

    That's why AJ & Fitzgerald are the 2 best WR's in the NFL, bar none. They have the talent and they have character.

    I guess everybody missed my first post in this thread. I suggest y'all go back and read it.

    Burress did NOT ask to be traded. Rosenhaus made a mistake. This kind of thing has been known to happen to agents who represent a large number of clients.

    Yea agreed, but I don't know why Plax has come out saying he wants to be traded though? The Giants have stood by him, he's just proving he is a tool by wanting to get out...

    I wouldn't even want him on the Texans if he were an unrestricted free agent.
