EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants have refused to pay suspended receiver Plaxico Burress a $1 million portion of a signing bonus from a contract signed in September. A union spokesman confirms the team decided not to make the payment, which was due today.

Giants general manager Jerry Reese waved his hands when asked today whether the team would make the payment.

The union filed a grievance yesterday challenging the Giants' decision to suspend and fine Burress last week, just days after the Super Bowl hero accidentally shot himself in a Manhattan nightclub on Nov. 29.
