plaxico burress was released by the new york giants after being with the team for 4 years. burress was adored by giants fans from the time he arrived till the time he shot himself in the leg in week 13 of last season. burress shot himself while at a new york nightclub. at the time of the shooting the giants were 11 and 1. they ended the season 12-4 and lost in the playoffs against the eagles.
i personally think this is a bad move for the giants, even though there is a lot of off field stuff going on that led to this decision. even though plaxico is a problem off the field, he is a proven winner on the field. look at what happened to the giants after he was sidelined in week 13 for the rest of the year. they lost 4 of their last 5 regular season games. we’ll see if the giants can pick someone up to fill the void now left with the departure of plaxico burress.
