New Orleans Saints: Reggie Bush, Plaxico Burress And The NFL

2 of 3

Former New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress was released from prison today after fulfilling a two year prison sentence stemming from a weapons charge in 2009.

Burress, along with fellow team mate Antonio Pierce, were in a New York night club when he accidentally shot himself in the thigh with an un-registered pistol he had tucked away in his waist band.

Plax will have to chillax though as his return to the NFL wil have to wait until labor peace is established. His agent Drew Rosenhaus has every expectation that he will play next season and maintains several teams are interested in obtaining his services.

The Eagles seem to be the leading team right now as several reports seem to suggest a strong interest from both sides to see him land in Philadelphia. Other teams that have been mentioned are the Seattle Seahawks and Tennessee Titans.

Philadelphia makes a lot of sense for Burress as they have already proven they are not afraid to sign a high profile player who is fresh out of the “clink”.

Michael Vick was signed to mixed reviews but has since revived his career as an Eagle, throwing for 3,018 yards and 21 touchdowns while rushing for 676 yards with 9 total rush touchdowns in 2010.
