I'm Still In Shape ...

and READY TO PLAY

EXCLUSIVE

He racked up 45 catches and 8 TDs last year ... but instead of being in an NFL locker room, Plaxico Burress spent his Monday shopping on Madison Ave. in NYC.

Plaxico -- who's only 35 years old -- still has not been signed to an NFL team ... but when we ran into him on the streets of New York yesterday, he assured us he's still in shape and ready to get on the field.

Of course, Plaxico's off-the-field history may have something to do with the lack of interest from NFL teams -- in case you forgot, he accidentally shot himself in the leg at a nightclub a few years ago.

Still, the guy caught 8 FRIGGIN' TOUCHDOWNS last year.

So, we gotta ask ...

If you are stupid enough to shoot yourself in the leg how can a teammate trust you?

If he hasn't caught on with a team by this point in the season I'd say he can forget about it. He's just too crazy to take a chance on.

I heard he's faster than a speeding bullet.

Plaxico did not cover himself in glory last year. He had a bad case of aligator arms all season, didn't do much in the way of blocking for his teammates and was his usual cancerous presence in the locker room.

There's more to football than catching eight TD passes. I have a feeling TMZ has a paucity of people with football knowledge.

They act like he killed someone, killed an animal, or raped someone. Geesh let him do his thing! Football players have done far worse and are still allowed to play the Game. ITS A FREAKIN GAME! And they get paid millions, what a waste.

This has nothing to do with shooting himself and everything to do with his attitude and work ethic. He's a cancer in the locker room and the entire NFL knows it. If he had any good qualities, some desperate team would have snatched him up and given him a chance. The fact that not one team has called him speaks volumes.

Plaxico, Terrell and Chad need to accept that they blew the opportunity God gave them to make millions and try to find other ways to make money.

He shot himself! Since when has the white man given a f**** about a black man getting shot? Absolutely racism stopping his NFL career. Call it the law if you want but fools be aware it has nothing to do with the law.

Eight touchdowns in sixteen games is no extraordinary feat.
He is finished.
Too bad to, not much call for felons in the work force.

None of them have jobs, who pays for lunch? When they go to a strip club they can't make it rain, they can only make it drizzle. Plex's crew throws up singles while the strippers lagh at them.This crew should break up until Plex gets on a team, this is sad

I love it when these wanna-be gangster tools finally realize that the NFL doesn't need them and they can be replaced with some 5th round draft pick. Later Plax
