It's crazy to think that it's been two and a half years since Plaxico Burress last played a snap in the NFL. On November 28, 2008, Burress accidentally shot himself in the leg with an unregistered gun while at a nightclub in New York City. He was charged and indicted on two counts of criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree and a single count of reckless endangerment, and has been in prison ever since.
But with Burress' prison term set to end on June 6th, there have been talks about where he'll end up...if there's a season. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has stated that Burress won't be suspended by the NFL, meaning he can suit up week one.
After the success of Michael Vick with the Eagles, it's obvious that world-class athletes can overcome almost any obstacles—including prison during the prime of their athletic peaks. For Burress to have the success he was enjoying before his stint in the joint, the best move for him is to return to the scene of the crime....the New York Giants.
Here are the top 10 reasons why a reunion between Burress and the Giants is a match made in heaven.
