Now that we got that out of the way, the agent for Plaxico Burress, Drew Rosenhaus, is upbeat about his client playing in the NFL in 2011. I have to wonder what the market will be for a 34 year wide receiver who has missed the last two seasons. If he gets out of prison in June, he is going to have to put in a lot of work to get into football shape by training camp.
If there is one agent who can get it done it is Rosenhaus.
Two teams have stayed in contact with Burress’ agent, Drew Rosenhaus, about the availability of his client while the receiver finishes his prison sentence.
Burress’ release date still is pending, but Rosenhaus expects him to be available for the start of training camp.
“I’m very confident that Plaxico will be playing next season in the NFL,” Rosenhaus said in a text message
It is crime that Burress has been in jail this long, but what is done is done. I hope someone gives him a shot to prove that he has learned his lesson.
The good thing about Burress is he was never a speed receiver but more of a physical guy that used his body to get open. So maybe his shelf life is a little longer than guys who solely depends on their legs.
Going forward, I just hope he values his freedom and never makes such bad decisions in the future.
