Plaxico Burress Released From Prison

6/6/2011 6:26 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Plaxico Burress is a free man, 22 months after he began serving a prison sentence for weapons violations.

Plaxico Burress Released From Jail

The NFL star left the Oneida Correctional Facility in central New York, hugging sports agent/guru Drew Rosenhaus on his way out.

Burress pled guilty in August, 2009 to attempted criminal possession of a weapon after accidentally shooting himself in an NYC nightclub.

Burress -- who played for the New York Giants --- wants to play again if an NFL team is willing to roll the dice. 

Can you say Michael Vick?

sorry but there is NO comparison between plaxico and vick. vick is a disgraceful human being who tortured innocent animals for years and made money off of it. plaxico simply made a mistake while trying to protect himself.

Although I am NOT a Plaxico fan (GO COWBOYS), keep this in mind:

1. ALL US Citizens have right to keep and bear arms.
2. He only hurt himself.

Granted, he could have used a little common sense and he did put other innocents in joepardy, he was the only one harmed.

Michael Vick, no compairson . If Vick was able to come back, they BETTER give Plax the same chance.

Jerry Jones will be looking him up. He'll fit right in with the Dallas Convicts.
