Plaxico Burress’ Get Out of Jail Free Day!

Today is a BIG day for Plaxico Burress, probably bigger than the day he got drafted, or played his first NFL game, or even won his first Super Bowl; today is get out of jail day! Whooo Hooo!

Former NFL wide receiver Plaxico Burress is expected to leave a New York prison Monday after serving 20 months on a weapons charge stemming from a shooting incident at a nightclub.

The former New York Giants player accidentally shot himself in the leg with a .40-caliber semi-automatic pistol he was carrying in his waistband. The incident occurred in November 2008, in the VIP area of the Latin Quarter nightclub in Manhattan.In August 2009, he pleaded guilty to a charge of attempted criminal possession of a weapon and agreed to serve two years under a plea agreement. He spent the last 20 months at the Oneida Correctional Facility in Rome, New York.

Burress became a hero to New York Giants fans in the 2008 Super Bowl when he caught the game-winning touchdown pass from quarterback Eli Manning with 35 seconds remaining in the game.

The following season, Burress’ career with the Giants was marred by a series of incidents.

He was suspended by the team in early October for missing a practice. Later that month, he was fined $45,000 by the NFL after arguing with a referee and throwing a football into the stands.After the nightclub incident, Burress was suspended from the Giants. The team later released him.

So what’s next for Burress? Some say he will travel a couple hundred miles South to play with division rival Micheal Vick and the Eagles, or some say he’s headed out West, some even predict he won’t be allowed to return to the game. Who knows, but this Jersey Girl can say that she’s looking forward to seeing Burress back on the field making some of the great plays that he made the New York Giants for so many years.
