Plax Wins Grievence

Plaxico Burress will get his $1 million after all.

The now-ex-Giant receiver beat his old team in their arbitration fight Monday when a Special Master ruled that the Giants must pay Burress the final, $1 million payment of his signing bonus that they withheld back in September. The Giants contended that Burress' actions violated behavioral clauses in his contract that forfeited the payment.

Special Master Stephen Burbank, who heard the case last Wednesday at the University of Pennsylvania law school, did not agree.

"We agreed in the 2006 (Collective Bargaining Agreement) extension that there would be no forfieture of signing bonuses unless it was a holdout situation," NFL Players Association General Counsel Richard Berthelsen told the Daily News. "And in that case, it could only be 25 percent, but the Special Master ruled that language didn't apply."
