Vincent JacksonCorrespondent IApril 3, 2009

ESPN has just reported that the New York Giants have released controversial wide receiver Plaxico Burress.

The news comes months after the Super Bowl XLII hero shot himself in the leg in a New York nightclub last winter.

Burress is awaiting trial for gun charges that will take place in June.

The Giants now look to April's draft to replace Burress' height and deep threat capabilities.
