just days after plaxico burress appeared in court to adjourn the hearing on his criminal gun possession charges, and less than two weeks after the giants said they'd give plaxico a second chance, the team suddenly announced his release today!
“I am an optimist, and I believe most situations can be worked out,” said General Manager Jerry Reese. “We hung in there as long as we could in hopes that there could be a resolution to this situation other than the decision we made today to release Plaxico. It wasn’t to be, so now we have to move on. Like everybody else here, we want nothing but the best for Plaxico, and we are appreciative of the contributions he made to this franchise.”
now, four+ months after the gunshot that set this all in motion - the giants can finally attend to the business of securing a wide receiver to replace him!
