The New York Giants shouldn't feel bad. They weren't alone in having a hard time getting in touch with Plaxico Burress.

He also has dodged calls from Khoury Alternative Claims Management, a San Antonio-based third-party administrator trying to catch up with the Giants receiver about some damage he did to a rental car. Burress returned a Suburban on June 2 to Epic Car and Truck Rental in Clifton, N.J., with scratches and dents in the bumper. He paid $996.95 for the rental but owed another $1,759 in damages. Burress dropped the car off after hours and never informed anyone of the damages.

"A lot of people do that," said Randy Harris, president of Khoury Alternative Claims Management. "Because of the damage they just split."

The Giants confirmed they had been contacted by Harris about the issue but refused comment.

This is similar to what the Giants often deal with regarding Burress, who has frustrated the team when he has blown off his responsibilities. Epic could not get the money from Burress and sent the matter to Khoury.

"He put down Allstate as his insurance and when we contacted them they said they don't have a policy for him," Harris said.

Repeated attempts by Khoury to contact Burress were unsuccessful and representatives from Khoury finally called the Giants, getting hold of Charles Way, the team's director of player development.

"He said he'd try his best to speak to Plaxico and get it paid," Harris said. "When we called him back he said, 'Man, I'm trying.' "

If no payment is secured, Khoury will send the file to a collection agency. Epic can take Burress to small claims court if it so desires.

"No response at all," a disgusted Harris said. "He's a bum."

Yet another reason I'm happy this chump is no longer a member of my favorite team.

:Agree This guy could be the greatest receiver ever to play in the NFL and I wouldn't want him on our team. What a complete idiot.

i agree i was very happy when burress left. i honestly never liked the guy, he is a poor excuse for a human being. he is a great talent but he took forever to get to where he is at. it took way too long for him to mature as a player and he has yet to mature as a person.

This will be the guy who makes millions while he's an active player in the NFL but when he's all washed up and retired, he'll be broke. If I were the Giants GM, and with the depth and young talent they have in that receiving corps like Dixon, Moss, Smith, Manningham and Tyree..... get rid of the malcontent. I find it hard to believe that a disciplinarian like Coughlin is swallowing what Burress is shoving down that team's throat. Not practicing, no call no shows.... time to move on. Toomer is a great veteran and displays the kind of leadership you'd want from a player in that position. Burress is a classless lout.

Plax nearly meets the qualifications to play for the bungals. He needs to sell crack to a school kid to seal that one though

I wonder if he payed the extra money for the insurance or did he "spike that ball too early" again.

I think its interesting that the rental car company is pursuing this because its not great publicity for them actually. I'd tell him he'd have to do a couple free ad campaigns for us and call it even.
