Talking with Josina Anderson on Showtime's "Inside the NFL," agent Drew Rosenhaus said former Super Bowl champion Plaxico Burress will play in 2011.
"I'm not a big advocate of making predictions on teams because so much can change," Rosenhaus said. "But I am not afraid to make the following prediction: Plaxico Burress will be playing in 2011, and he will play very well. And it will be a very happy ending to a very tough, tough story for him."
After winning the Super Bowl with the New York Giants in 2008, Burress accidentally shot himself in the thigh at a nightclub in November that year.
The 33-year-old pleaded guilty to one count of attempted criminal possession of a weapon and was sentenced to two years in prison.
Michael David Smith of ProFootballTalk noted that once Burress is out of prison, he is free to sign with any team and "will not face any additional league discipline."
