Plaxico Burress Prison Release Date Is Monday

Former New York Giants WR Plaxico Burress will be making headlines on Monday as he's set to be released from an upstate New York prison on Monday. Burress shot himself in the leg in a New York nightclub nearly three years ago and was sentenced to nearly two years in prison.

He applied for a work release last year but that was denied so he's been waiting for this date for a while. Burress will exit prison as a free agent after the Giants released him. With the NFL lockout, he won't be signing with anyone right away but there are reportedly teams interested.

The Eagles appear to be the team he's connected to most often because he reportedly told one of his former Giants teammates that he would like to play there. It's unclear how the Eagles feel, though. The Rams are another team people have brought up as a possibility. You could also throw the Jets in there as they're connected to most receivers as well.

Burress' task once he's released will be to get back into football shape. With nearly three years away from the game, that will be a pretty significant part of his return. He's also turning 34 years old in August so the odds are stacked against him to be successful.
