BRADSHAW WAS THE THIRD GIANT

Tiki Barber of NBC reports that Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw was the third member of the team who was present at the Latin Quarter night club in Manhattan when receiver Plaxico Burress accidentally shot himself.
Police were (and still might be) under the impression that the third Giant was running back Derrick Ward.
Barber reports that Bradshaw, while present, wasn’t involved in the incident.  But to the extent that Bradshaw is on probation of any kind in relation to the incident that resulted in an unexpected one-month prison term during the offseason, the fact that he was at the club could at a minimum compel him to answer some tough questions — especially since most probation arrangements compel the individual to steer clear of alcohol (and, possibly, establishments that serve alcoholic beverages).
Barber also reports that it’s not clear whether the hospital at which Burress received treatment reported the gunshot wound.  As we mentioned earlier in the day, New York law requires medical facilities to report such matters promptly. 
Tiki also mentions something about which we previously hadn’t heard, and to which we can find no reference via an Internet search.  Per Barber, Giants receiver Steve Smith was robbed last week at gunpoint outside his home.  That incident might have prompted Burress to decide that he needed to carry the gun in order to keep himself from getting shot.
Little did Burress know that this decision would result in getting himself shot, by himself, and losing (per Peter King) as much as $23 million in future payments under his contract with the Giants.

  1. Jared Allen was the 3rd person at the shooting, and Adrian Peterson was the shooter. It was Ray Edwards’s gun.
    I just saved Florio a week’s worth of writing.

  2. Did you say $23 million? THAT is an expensive night out especially
    considering it wasn’t even a strip club.
    Probation is no problem for Bradshaw…it’s a load of problems. And just
    when you thought the G-Men were unstoppable, another guy with a
    crooked hat and a “me-me-me, I-I-I” attitude comes along and tries to
    spoil the party.
    Good luck Antonio. He didn’t deserve this. Probably was just trying to get
    a lady-friend for Plax.

  3. Tiki has got to be just a little happy about covering this story. Tiki is covering the story better than his brother is covering WR’s.

  4. Plax is supposedly married to an attorney and per his own comments has children he really cares about. So why was he out clubbing with is buddies?

  5. So Bradshaw was in the club does not mean he was part of it or that he was drinking maybe he was the designated driver
    Plex is the problem not Bradshaw nor Pierce all you haters are having way to much fun with this it was Plex he is guilty and if he can get convicted fast Mike vick can have some on to have a toss with
    on the flip side a .40 Cal is a hell of a handgun last one that made news in NY was used by a guy nicknamed the son of sam
    Lastly I had the pleasure of seeing Tiki has been interview The MVP Eli was so funny I wish I had recorded it so I could watch Tiki eat crow again and again
    11-1 So all you haters can kiss my butt
    Oh I forgot great game rivers gald we got Eli!!!!!!!!

  6. WHO CARES NOT THE REAL PEOPLE LIKE MYSELF WHO HAVE TO WORK TO PAY FOR THEIR FAMILY.JUST ANOTHER HIGH PRICED SPOILED JERK.HE DESERVES EVERYTHING HE GETS FROM THE LEGAL SYSTEM

  7. 1) Wow. Florio had to credit Tiki for numerous bits of info. It must be killing him! 2) Between the Tatum Bell bellhop incident, the Al Davis presser, Starcaps, Pacman, and now Plaxico Bullet, this is the funniest NFL year I can remember. 3) I picked up Hixon. Yes! (ok, my team is mediocre, and he’s an upgrade.)

    At least Rhonde has a ring.

  9. They should have just fingered Pac Man for the shooting. Even if he wasnt in the NYC area at the time, theres still a 90% probability that his prints are on the gun.

  10. wasn’t bradshaw in the pokey lately for violating a probation issue? could this be a potential problem for the gints?

  11. I can’t believe nobody has made a Barney Fife reference yet.
    Didn’t the Giants only give Plaxico one bullet ? Wasn’t Antonio supposed to keep bullet in his shirt pocket ?

  12. I still can’t comprehend why you would go out to an establishment where you feel you need to bring a gun to protect yourself.
