Plaxico Burress: "When I joined the Giants, they asked me what number I wanted, and I chose 17. They asked why, and I said 'it's going to be one of the greatest free agency signings in New York Giants history, and I signed on March 17th.' So I did get my number, but I didn't have to pay anything for it. Jeff Feagles would tell you differently."

LaVar Arrington, TJ Houshmandzadeh, and Plaxico Burress react to Deshaun Watson giving generous gifts to retain his jersey number in Cleveland. Plaxico gives insight on how he got number 17 when he joined the New York Giants, explaining why the claims that he "stole" the number are false. Plus, the guys debate if Watson is desperately trying to get positive publicity with his gifts to Anthony Walker Jr.
