'Very Serious' Interest in Burress
At least two NFL teams are "very serious" about signing wide receiver Plaxico Burress, according to agent Drew Rosenhaus.
Burress was released by the New York Giants earlier this offseason and faces weapon charges stemming from the incident last year in which he accidentally shot himself in the leg at a New York nightclub.
Burress's attorneys have been attempting to negotiate a plea deal with prosecutors but any agreement reportedly might include jail time for Burress.
Even so, Rosenhaus wrote on Twitter that Burress could be returning to the NFL.
"Ran wind sprints with Plaxico Burress," Rosenhaus wrote. "There are at least 2 teams that are very serious about signing him so he has stayed in great shape."
Rosenhaus did not identify the teams. There have been reports of possible interest by the New York Jets and Chicago Bears.
Rosenhaus also wrote in a separate entry: "Plaxico got a call from an NFL head coach yesterday and he will be meeting with senior NFL executives in the near future."
