Source: Burress wants out of NY

Drew Rosenhaus, the agent for Plaxico Burress, sent an e-mail to the NFL's teams this week letting them know that the suspended Giants receiver was one of three clients who want to be traded, an NFL executive told the Associated Press yesterday. The person requested anonymity because the e-mail was supposed to remain private. The other two players are Anquan Bolden, of the NFC champion Cardinals, and Chad Johnson, of the Bengals.

Arizona general manager Rod Graves did not return a telephone call left by the AP at his office. Giants general manager Jerry Reese refused to comment.

Rosenhaus did not return telephone calls and an e-mail.

Burress' future has been in limbo since he shot himself in the right thigh at a New York City nightclub in late November. He was charged with felony gun possession and, if convicted, he faces a minimum sentence of 3 1/2 years in prison.
