Who'd take a guy who is going to be in jail come September?

He's an AMAZING talent...there will be plenty of "takers"...and I'm willing to put a cool $100 on the fact that BOTH the Cowboys and Snyder / Cerrato have made a call to his agent...even though Snyderato would deny it.

I see him as a lesser Terrell Owens. Too many problems to take. The Skins have enough to deal with without getting a guy that HATES to practice and "somehow" manages to shoot himself in the leg!

I am curious, is he ACTUALLY going to jail for sure? If so, how long?

If so I await similar outrage like when Cerrato made less than truthful statements to the press in the name of secrecy. I bet we don't see nearly as much.

I think they where waiting to see what kind of case he is up against. I'm not sure how he could get out of serving the min which I think it was posted here is around 4 years.

NY did the right thing. It's time for them to move on. Burress has so much damn baggage and it's just not worth it to them anymore. His career is over cause he just doesn't know or understand how to be a professional. They're depending on some young wr's that are waiting in the wings, just like we are.

I hate that dude. Let our wr's come of age, or sign a solid vet as a stop gap measure if you have to, but not plax!

Re: Giants release Burress

His charged crime carries 3-5 MANDATORY sentence. Even when they plead it down he has a bunch of factors working against.

A) NY is notoriously anti-gun. Prosecutors put people in jail for gun crimes like cops write speeding tickets
B) The prospector and the MAYOR have said they want jail time. I believe the phrase "make an example of hi" was used.
C) The case will be heard smack dab in the middle of the MAYOR's reelection
D) Typically even once pleaded down defendants carry 3-12 months on these types of crimes.

He's going to jail. Not for 3 years but I'd bet he gets 6 months.

Makes me wonder if he will still be able to play though. He can plead the economic hardship and might be allowed to play though. Sure it's a long shot, but it "could" work.
