Former Michigan State wide receiver Plaxico Burress will be released from jail Monday, according to his agent, Drew Rosenhaus.
USA Today cited Rosenhaus’ Twitter account on which he said: “I’m excited about Plax’s release Monday. He’ll be a highly sought after free agent once the lockout is over. He’s in great shape & healthy.”
Burress, who will turn 31 on August 12, has been in jail since 2009 on a weapons conviction. Burress, a Super Bowl-winning wide out with the New York Giants, suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound in 2008 at a New York City nightclub.
But on to the juicy stuff: Where will Burress – who has said he intends to return to the NFL – end up?
According to USA Today, fellow former inmate Michael Vick said Burress would be welcomed on the Philadelphia Eagles, which no doubt would lead to a lot of “Jail Bird” headlines.
