Plaxico Burress was finally released from jail today after a two year sentence for shooting himself. -___- Only in America do you get such time for something to stupid.

Plaxico Burress' Prison Release And Future In The NFL With Philadelphia Eagles

Good players are determined by their technique. Great athletes are determined by their raw ability to perform in their sport of choice. Superstars are made by their influence inside and outside of the game. Legends rise from the ashes of their trials and mistakes. They thrive off of the thought of comebacks and attempt to avoid the moral victory.

When Plaxico Burress is released from prison on Monday, there is a cloud of uncertainty surrounding his return in the league and if he will be able to succeed as Michael Vick did. Unfortunately one of the things that both athletes have in common is that they both faced the prison system for a wide lack of judgment. Even though Burress should not have received the penalty he did for shooting himself, he still committed a crime, thus making himself vulnerable to the legal system, no matter how bias the sentence seemed.

Now, it is time for him to prove himself once again in the eyes of his peers, league owners and management as well as the fans who seemingly lost faith in the once productive Giants’ Wide Receiver. Now that Brandon Jacobs, NY Giants’ player, has somewhat confirmed that Plaxico will not be returning to NY to play alongside him, as reported by Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN New York,  it is pretty safe to say that the majority thinks he will land in Philadelphia catching bullets from Vick.

“He isn’t coming to the Giants,” Jacobs added. “He’s got options. I would love for him to be a part of the Giants. I don’t think that is even on his plate.” Continue reading Plaxico Burress' Prison Release And Future In The NFL With Philadelphia Eagles

Troy Polamalu is More Than Just a Pittsburgh Steelers' Safety

Troy Polamalu has become gorgeous and a college graduate. He was drafted into the NFL after his senior season at USC but had not yet earned enough credits to be rewarded his degree. That is not a problem now because earlier Friday he joined the undergraduates in USC’s political science program and received a diploma. Continue reading Troy Polamalu is More Than Just a Pittsburgh Steelers' Safety

Former Cowboys' Running Back Dies at 54

Ron Springs holds a legacy in Dallas that was left unscathed as he passed away Thursday due to a heart attack. At the age of 54, Springs had already endured major health issues of his kidney. The kidney failure he sustained was a result of the diabetes he had suffered from for about 20 years.

Sergio Kindle Pleads Guilty to Drunken Driving

It seems like this will be one of the most controversial off seasons for NFL players. Not only because of the labor dispute that each side refuses to settle, but there seems to be a lot of arrests made in the name of the game. Baltimore Ravens’ linebacker Sergio Kindle pleaded guilty to drunken driving on Tuesday and apologized for his actions. What did that get him? Well, a right on time apology landed Kindle with two years of unsupervised probation, a waived $1000 fine, an order to abstain from alcohol and self-help sessions on a weekly basis.

If you have never seen Kindle play, do not worry. You are not alone. Continue reading Sergio Kindle Pleads Guilty to Drunken Driving

Former Steeler and ESPN Analyst Kordell Stewart Arrested

Kordell Stewart, who played QB for the Steelers for 8 years and was in the league for 11 years total, was arrested yesterday Wednesday afternoon and detained 1 hour and 45 mins. The New Orleans native, who now is one of ESPN’s top NFL analysts, was unknowingly driving with suspended license due to an out dated traffic ticket.

His publicist sent over a statement saying, “The arrest has opened Kordell’s eyes about staying on top of his automobile issues with a closer eye.”

No shade on Stewart. I’ve been in the same exact situation. SMH.

NFL players, as well as NBA players, are lining up to lower child support payments and alimony to reflect in what would be considered reduced income during the lockout.

Moss Unlikely to Return Next Season in a Titans Uniform

After an underwhelming season played for the Titans, Randy Moss is unlikely to be returned to the roster last year. Moss recorded only 6 catches for 80 yards and 0 touchdowns in the 8 games he played with the Titans. It’s safe to say that in his 13th year in the NFL, that age is catching up and Moss isn’t the same player he was with the Patriots.

On Friday, Tennessee Titans General Manager Mike Reinfeldt held a conference call with season ticket holders to discuss the team’s plans heading into the 2011 season. One of the main plans that is sure to catch headlines involves wide receiver Randy Moss–who fans shouldn’t expect back for a second season with the Titans.
