P. Burress (US Presswire)
Mark it down: June 6, the day Plaxico Burress will be a free man again. The New York State Department of Correctional Services announced that the former Giants wide receiver has earned time off on the basis of good behavior. Burress’ three months early release has long been expected. He’ll wind up skipping 1/7 of his original two-year prison sentence.

After unknowingly shooting himself in the leg at a Manhattan nightclub in 2008, Burress pleaded guilty in 2009 to attempted criminal possession of a weapon.

The “who will sign Burress?” discussion already commenced several weeks ago. The early release is great fortune for Burress because it will allow him a few extra weeks of training time before teams likely will start taking close looks at him when training camps open up in late July/early August. Roger Goodell has said Burress can sign with any team once he’s a free man.

Mike Vick killed and tortured dogs as a hobby and was comeback player of the year.

But there are questions on whether some moron is rehaabilitated from shooting himself? That should have been punishment enough
I think the bigger questions are whether or not he i actually worth wasting a roster spot on.  He's been out of the league for a couple of years and will be 34 when the season starts.  Why would anyone sign an old, out of shape WR with a history of legal problems and being a team cancer?  Oh wait, the Bengals and Raiders would....

Going to be very interesting to watch and see what type of attitude Palxico Burress comes with from prison. If he's humble and admits he was an idiot... he'll most likely be welcomed with open arms. If he comes and acts like he's the victim... he might play maybe one more year... if he even makes an NFL roster!

Yes Plaxico is an idiot. But his carelessness was his downfall. Guns are what keep us free. If the jews had guns in germany it would have never happened. Also Stricter gun laws just keep guns out of good citizens hands, As crimanals do not care about laws, they will get a gun weather u its legal or not.  According to you i guess the founding fathers of this nation were bad cause they owned guns. Read the letters by the founding fathers you will see guns are about freedom. Slaves are not allowed to own weapons.
That is fanfreakingstatic.  It's so idiotic that it has passed through infuriating and straight on to hilarious.

In NYC, it's a 2 year MINIMUM for hand gun possession without a permit.  Also, remember NYPD came down hard on him for lying and not corportating with police. Law is the law, even if not fair.

He could have started sentense early, before the trail started and been honest with police. If he had he could have played last year.

I agree with Anto in that Plaxico never was what I would call hard core. I think he will have some sucess in the years to come.
