The NFL team that released Plaxico Burress four months after he shot himself in the leg just weighed in on their former receiver's two year prison sentence.
The New York Giants gave us the following statement:

Plaxico caught the Giants' game-winning touchdown in Superbowl XLII -- when they beat the undefeated New England Patriots.
