Burress, Giants Settle Grievance

From NY Post:

Before they could completely rid themselves of the distraction and headache that Plaxico Burress evolved into the Giants first had to deal with a second grievance their former receiver filed against them. The Giants have come up with a settlement with Burress and now can turn the page and move on.

Burress back in December filed a second grievance against the team, claiming that he should not have lost slightly more than $1 million based on the Giants suspending him for the final four games of the season and docking him one game-check. The Giants felt they were well within their rights not to pay Burress but this time decided not to fight the NFL Players Association. Burress won the first grievance he filed against the Giants when they withheld a $1 million portion of his signing bonus.

Terms of the settlement were not immediately known.

My take: I’m glad this is all over. Now they can move on.
