Plaxico Burress was recently released from prison after serving nearly two years on a firearm charge. He's a free man and finally set to be a free agent once the lockout ends.
Now he faces the challenge of convincing a ball club to take a chance and sign the former Super Bowl hero.
The 33-year old has been locked up for twenty-two months and even though he did workout while locked up, he must still get into true football shape.
Moreover, There are a lot of veteran wide receivers such as Randy Moss or Terrell Owens who will probably be given higher priority and you know that when teams are looking at the troubled persona of Owens before you then you've got an issue.
And of course, a team has to be willing to take that risk knowing that his image is tainted and it would potentially bring in a lot of unwanted distractions.
On the bright side, Michael Vick demonstrated that its possible to redeem yourself not only off-the-field from a public perspective but also on-the-field with athletic success. That being said, Burress can certainly do it.
Don't forget he was one of the best at his position before this altercation so he will generate some interest. With the right discipline and determination, he could be catching touchdowns on Sunday once again. It'll just be tough.
Here are the top teams who I believe will be interested in signing Plaxico Burress.
Note: This is in no specific order.
