Plaxico Burress is a free man today, having served time for a felony gun possession charge.
We told you previously that Plaxico went to a Manhattan nightclub called the Latin Quarter with an unlicensed gun tucked inside sweatpants. At some point during the evening, the gun went off, and a bullet went into his thigh. With NY having some of the most stiff gun laws in the country, Plaxico was arrested and plead guilty to a felony gun possession charge. He was sentenced to two years in jail.
So what’s next for him? Although the NFL lockout is still in place, Plaxico’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, told The Associated Press that he will get back into football shape and make a comeback. “He will play in the NFL this year,” Drew said.
In the meantine, Plaxico returns home to his wife Tiffany, 4-year-old son, Elijah, and year-and-a-half old daughter, Giovanna, who was born while he was incarcerated.
