NFL | Plaxico Burress expected to get out of prison soon

Unrestricted free-agent WR Plaxico Burress (Giants) is expected to be released from prison in the next two to three weeks as part of a work-release program, a source told George Willis, of the New York Post. New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese said the team would explore the possibility of re-signing Burress when he gets out of prison.

Fantasy Tip: In very deep leagues, it may not hurt to take a final-round flier on Burress. He'll likely be suspended by the NFL for a minimum of a few games, and probably no more than eight games, but some team will take a chance on him. If you feel you can afford to stash him for the second half of the year, since it will take him time to get back into game shape, Burress is a worthwhile gamble.
