at the financial levels these guys are talking about, there is no reason if you are moderately aware of real finances, and are moderately competitive why you should have to extract every last drop of a contract because you can. That is the thing that bugs people -- not that you are at a high plateau to begin with -- but to have to extract every drop when you are making so much to begin with, all at the expense of competitiveness.
Who is their right mind would want a one year contract? Plaxico and his agents don't seem all there. They may get lucky, but I doubt it.
What is in it for the other team? He is going to want to set the market value for the next contract, next year. Why would a team want both the uncertainty with the player, but also the investment in getting him the ball so he can bolt? If you don't, then he is going to be a locker room problem.
He isn't that good. He could be that good. But right now, he really isn't.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.
