Former Steelers and Giants WR Plaxico Burress is currently in prison on gun charges, but when he is released on June 6, he is planning on playing football once again.

His former agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said on "Inside the NFL" Wednesday night that he expects the Super Bowl XLII hero to be in an NFL uniform next season.

"I am not a big advocate of making predictions on teams because so much can change, but I am not afraid to make the following prediction: Plaxico Burress will be playing in 2011," Rosenhaus said. "And he will play very well. And it will be a very happy ending to a very tough, tough story for him."

Burress pled guilty in 2009 to attempted criminal possession of a weapon after an incident at a New York nightclub which resulted in the receiver shooting himself in the leg.

According to ESPN, both the Giants and Ravens have expressed interest in talking with Burress when he is released from prison.

The way we see it

Burress is a proven, big-play, big-game receiver and there is always a market for those kinds of players. A WR-needy team definitely will explore the option of bringing in Burress, off-field baggage and all. We agree with Rosenhaus — Burress will find a roster spot somewhere in the NFL in 2011.
