Stevie Johnson didn’t talk directly to Plaxico Burress, but he got in contact with him and apologized for his touchdown celebration in which he mocked shooting himself in the leg just like Burress did at a nightclub that landed him in federal prison for two years.
“I just sent him a text message and he responded and everything is cool,” said Johnson. “Between me and him it is (smoothed over). It’s an unfortunate situation with me being immature like that, but I got in touch with him and he responded and it’s cool.”
While the fact that the celebration drew the flag was bothersome to head coach Chan Gailey so too was Johnson’s mocking of the Burress gun incident.
“It bothered me. Sure it did,” said Gailey. “I don’t think you make fun of people. I don’t think you do that. That’s wrong in my opinion and I stated that.”
