Pryor Offers Burress A Ride to Giant Camp

Over the last year and a half, Plaxico and I have had several conversations about life and coming back to the ball when the quarterback under throws it.

It came to light, Plaxico is nuts about Dart Swingers, and come June, on the day he's released from prison, I'm picking him up in the Dart you see here and driving him directly to the New York Giants Football Club. Eli Manning firmly supports this arrangement.

"Nobody adjusts to the ball like Plaxico."

Burress to Leave Prison in June

The former Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress will be released from prison in June, after officials agreed Friday to shave about three months off his sentence in a gun case. A committee of prison-system staff members decided Burress, 33, was eligible for time off for good behavior, so he can be freed after serving about 21 months of his two-year sentence, a system spokeswoman, Linda Foglia, said.

With Burress’s release date now set for June 6, his agent and his lawyer said he was looking to return to football. He went to jail as a result of an incident in 2008 when he shot himself in a nightclub.

“He’s counting the hours,” the lawyer, Peter M. Frankel, said. “He’s extremely positive.”

N.F.L. Commissioner Roger Goodell has ruled that Burress will be reinstated and eligible to sign with a team once his sentence is complete.

While the league and players are locked in negotiations that have cast a shadow of uncertainty over next season, Frankel and Burress’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said several teams had expressed interest in signing him.

Giants General Manager Jerry Reese has said the team will keep its options open with Burress.
