NFL Free Agency: The Top 5 Landing Spots for Plaxico Burress

Plaxico Burress, the 6'5'', 33 year old wide receiver, was released from an Upstate New York prison this morning.

In today's NFL, a big, physical wide receiver is a highly valuable commodity for any team, and Burress absolutely fits the bill.

Before his arrest for gun charges after infamously shooting himself in the leg at a night club and almost two years in a correctional facility, Burress was a member of the New York Giants.

He had a career year in the Giants Super Bowl winning season of 2007. Burress collected 12 touchdowns, and over 1,000 yards on the season. In the playoffs, he had an astounding 151 yards on 11 catches in the NFC Championship game against Green Bay, and caught the winning touchdown with under 40 seconds left in Super Bowl XLII against the New England Patriots.

With the recent success of Michael Vick, after he was imprisoned, many teams will be chomping at the bit for Burress.

Here are the top five landing spots for Burress.
