Plaxico Burress Released From Prison

by at . Comments

Plaxico Burress was released from prison this morning. The former New York Giants star served 22 months for myriad weapons violations.

The NFL standout left the Oneida Correctional Facility in Upstate New York, hugging his agent, Drew Rosenhaus on his way out the door.

Burress pleaded guilty in August 2009 to attempted criminal possession of a gun after accidentally shooting himself in an NYC nightclub.

HE'S OUT: After nearly two years in the slammer, Plax is a free man, but not before making our celebrity mug shots gallery one last time. Well, hopefully.

"It's a beautiful day," he said. "It's a beautiful day to be reunited with my family. I want to go home and spend some quality time with them."

Wearing shades, Burress thanked God as well as "all my fans all around the world for the thousands of letters, for their unwavering support."

Burress wants to play again if an NFL team will roll the dice. We'd tell him not to hold his breath, but does anyone remember Michael Vick?

Speaking of, Plax rocked a Phillies cap as he departed. Might he be hinting at a possible trip down I-95 to join forces with Vick in Philly?
