"There Is Nothing Pleasent About Prison"

The title is a quote from Plaxico Burress upon his release from prison. Plaxico, one time a marginal star in the NFL, entered prison on a gun charge almost two years ago. He the charge came from a night when he accidentally shot himself in the leg when the pistol in his pocket went off. He claimed it kinda just went off on its own. Oh, and he was drunk and at a night club too. As anyone who has handled a gun would know, they do not just go off. They do not go off from moving around in your pocket and they do not go off when you drop them. It takes a bit of force to pull back on that trigger to cause the gun to shoot. Either way, since he was drunk and the gun was unlicensed (you wonder why a millionaire could not bother to get his gun licensed) he was given a nice term in jail to think about what he had done.

So, who will want him now? Well, I think the Giants are done with him. The Jets will probably be interested with Braylon Edwards being an expensive free agent right now. Rex Ryan has not trouble having criminals on his team. He did not care when Edwards was arrested last year. Hey, other team have the same philosophy. Why, the Cincinnati Bengals have signed criminals to their roster for years. Another possible destination is Philadelphia with the thought the reformed Mike Vick would be a good influence on him.

Whoever he ends up it is sad that someone with so much talent wasted two years of his life over something so stupid.

  5. I was always curious about this cause Vick kills dogs in brutal ways and gets a cake walk yet this guy shoots himself in the leg and serves nearly two years. Where's the justice in this?

  11. Gun crimes are serious things. The courts really don't look too kindly on them.
