NFL on Plax

August
20

There’s been a lot of talk about the wide on this blog, so I thought I’d include it. Pretty strong, and I think what has happened with Ellis, Plaxico and other NFL players who get in trouble show there won’t a free pass from the league.

Here’s the NFL’s statement on former Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress:

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.
