NFL on Plax

August
20

Since Ernie is on vacation and a little, tiny piece of news broke, I thought I’d just pop this up on the blog. Former Giants receiver Plaxico Burress pleaded guilty today to weapons charges and serve two years in prison. The NFL released an official statement on Burress, and here it is:

PLAXICO BURRESS is not under contract to an NFL team. In light of his plea today, Commissioner ROGER GOODELL has suspended Burress and informed him that he is ineligible to sign with any team until he completes his jail term. Commissioner Goodell said Burress will be reinstated and eligible to sign with an NFL team upon the completion of his sentence. Burress was notified on June 26 that Commissioner Goodell had initiated a review of the matter for potential discipline under the NFL’s Personal Conduct and Weapons policies. Commissioner Goodell and members of his staff conducted a hearing with Burress and his representatives last Wednesday (August 12) in New York.
