For those of you that have been concerned with the lack of "breaking news" stories on our front page, here ya go: Plaxico Burress has just been released by the Giants.
Ladies and Gentlemen, let the speculation begin! I personally love Plaxico Burress the football player. He's helped me win a handful of fantasy football titles, and the guy catches everything in his area code. Just ask the Packers in the 2007 NFC title game about that one. Unfortunately, Plaxico Burress the person has rendered Plaxico Burress the football player invalid for the foreseeable future. Even if he avoids jail time, which doesn't sound likely due to New York's strict gun laws, you just know that Roger "I AM THE LAW!" Goodell will slap him with a lengthy suspension as soon as his legal matters are settled.
Burress would make be an ideal fit for the Vikings, but I think it's going to be quite some time before we see "Cheddar Plax" in uniform again.
