Plaxico Burress will be out of jail before training camps start
Plaxico Burress will be released from prison three months early, putting him on the street in time to potentially catch on with an NFL team before training camp.
The New York Daily News reported that Burress will be set free from Oneida Correctional Facility on June 6. He’s been incarcerated since September 2009 after he was convicted on gun charges following an incident at a Manhattan night club when the former New York Giant shot himself in the leg.
Burress’ agent Drew Rosenhaus has stated numerous times that Burress plans on continuing his career immediately. What kind of interest there will be in him remains to be seen after he’s missed two seasons.
Burress applied for early release multiple times and was denied. Per the report, all inmates are eligible for conditional release when they have served 6/7 of their sentence. It’s doubtful that the Giants bring Burress back.
