Plaxico Burress Posts Bail as Giants Weigh Options

Taken to court in handcuffs, Plaxico Burress posted $100,000 bail on weapons possession charges Monday as the frenzy grew around the New York Giants star receiver who accidentally shot himself in a nightclub.

Authorities said teammate Antonio Pierce was being investigated over his role in the weekend shooting, and the Super Bowl champion Giants weren't sure what action they would take, if any, against Burress. The NFL said it was monitoring developments. New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg also weighed in, saying it would be an outrage "if we didn't prosecute to the fullest extent of the law."
