Plaxico Burress is scheduled to be released from prison on June 6 and will be looking to get back into the league.

What does he now bring to the table as an NFL wide receiver? That, no one knows for sure. But what we do know for sure is a lot of teams could use help at wideout.

First off, I think it is safe to say that being incarcerated for nearly two years isn't conducive to excelling on the football field. Of course, I am aware of Michael Vick's accomplishments under similar circumstances, but I still will stick by my point that going to jail doesn't make one a better football player. And it took some time before Vick got his mojo back.
