NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell kicks off his review of Plaxico Burress

Published on June 28, 2009 by     

US-AMFOOT-NFL-GIANTS-BURRESSNFL commissioner Roger Goodell has begun his review on Plaxico Burress to see if the former Giants wide receiver violated the league’s personal conduct policy.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy confirmed a report from ESPN that Burress had been so notified by Adolpho Birch, the NFL’s vice president of labor and law policy.

Goodell likely initiated his review so he can make a ruling on a potential suspension prior to the start of training camp. Goodell does not have to wait for any court ruling to decide to suspend Burress, who accidentally shot himself in the thigh on Nov.29 in a Manhattan nightclub.

Burress played in 10 games last season before the incident, catching 35 passes for 454 yards and four touchdowns.

Burress, who made the catch that won Super Bowl XLII for the Giants, faces up to three and a half years in prison if convicted on charges of criminal possession of a weapon. His case has been adjourned until Sept.23.

Drew Rosenhaus, Burress’ agent, said on his Twitter page that at least five teams are interested in the wide receiver. The Jets, Bears and Buccaneers are three teams that reportedly have expressed interest. However, before signing him, teams will want to know what Burress’ legal status will be – or, if that is not decided, whether Goodell will suspend him and for how long.
