You're not very fond of any Steelers, are you Gibbs?
A day after meeting with Burress, Giants general manager Ernie Accorsi announced on Thursday that the team was no longer interested in signing the former Pittsburgh Steeler and had withdrawn its contract offer. The announcement itself was unusual -- most teams don't usually say publicly that they have no interest in a player.
"The Giants made us an offer, we rejected, they upped their offer, we rejected it again, and that's when they said they had to rescind the deal," Michael Harrison, Burress' agent told the Associated Press.
Harrison would not discuss the Giants' offer, but a source close to the team said the deal was worth $24 million with an $8 million signing bonus.
