Plaxico Burress: Can Former NY Giants Star Burress Make Comeback After Prison?
Plaxico Burress to Be Released From Prison on Monday
Former New York Giants receiver Plaxico Burress is scheduled to be released from prison on Monday morning after 20 months and 14 days behind bars.
Jailed after an incident in 2008 in which he shot himself outside a New York nightclub with an unlicensed gun, Burress is adamant that he will be looking to continue his NFL career after he gets out of prison.
Burress has said he's been staying in shape while in prison and has even been catching balls from fellow inmates to pass the time.
So, the question is, when Burress is released on Monday amid a slew of fans and media, can he make a comeback to the NFL?

Burress is 34 years old right now, which certainly isn't considered young in the league. But let's not forget that from 2005 to 2007 Burress and Eli Manning were the most productive receiver-quarterback tandem in the NFL, combining for over 3,220 yards and 29 touchdowns.
And although Burress did have a disappointing final season with the Giants before the incident, he was battling injuries at the time.
Terrell Owens and Randy Moss have shown us that if you're talented enough, you seem to always find a home in the National Football League, regardless of your baggage.
If Burress can play, he's going to find a home.
I believe he will, and some reportedly believe it will be with the Philadelphia Eagles or St. Louis Rams.
