Plaxico's lawyer doesn't see a return to football soon

Yesterday we noted that a source described a New York Post report saying Plaxico Burress could be released from prison in weeks as “bogus.”

Today the New York Daily News quotes Burress lawyer Peter Frankel as saying no one should expect Burress playing in the NFL any time soon.

“There’s a very wide range of possible outcomes here, and I do not want to get too ahead of myself,” Frankel said. “I don’t see [a return to football] happening in the short term. He still has a year left on his sentence, so this is still completely up to the discretion of the Department of Corrections and what they want to do.”

Frankel added that Burress does want to return to the NFL once he’s out of prison. But all indications are that Burress, who turns 33 next week, won’t be available until 2011.

    Wrong, just getting all their ducks in a row. Nothing wrong with not putting the cart before the horse.
    He will get out this month and work on his “work release” and will play in the NFL this year.

    Plax seems to have been changed by his prison experience. He went in looking like a tight end and comes out looking every bit the wide receiver.

    Why do Plaxico Burress posts get tagged for NYG yet Rich Seubert and Ahmad Bradshaw ones don’t?
