Plax Gets Axed: NY Giants Release WR Burress

Plans for Plaxico Burress to remain a member of the New York Giants have been shot in the leg, as the team announced today they are releasing the troubled receiver.

The NY DAILY NEWS has this statement from Giants GM Jerry Reese:

“I am an optimist, and I believe most situations can be worked out. 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.”

Let the Plaxico-picked-up-by-the-Bengals jokes commence! Then again, Burress in Cincinnati might not seem so far-fetched. Just ask Cedric Benson or Chris Henry.
