There's no doubt that Plaxico Burress' season has come to an end after tearing his rotator cuff, but it's also a strong posibility that his lengthy 12-year career may have come to an end as well. Burress has experienced a relatively successful career. -- Despite getting selected to zero Pro Bowls.Burress has just recently returned to the NFL after serving a two-year prison sentence in 2009, after shooting himself in the leg, and getting released in 2011. Upon his release, Burress signed a one-year, $3.017 million contract with the New York Jets, and registered 612 yards and eight touchdowns during the 2011 season.In 2012, Burress re-signed with his former team, the Pittsburgh Steelers, yet only played in four games, resulting in 42 yards and one touchdown. In 2013, Burress signed a one-year deal to stay with the Steelers.Looking at how Burress has played a role in teams' offenses in recent years, he hasn't had a 1,000-yard season since 2007 -- during his tenure with the New York Giants. The years following his release from prison, many football fans feel that Plaxico Burress hasn't played at an elite level.Since tearing his rotator cuff, many NFL fans have agreed that 2012 will be the last time Burress played a regular season game in the NFL. Putting it in perspective, one couldn't imagine many NFL teams being interested in the 36-year old. --Taking into account his age, and especially after coming off of an injury.Taking his performance in recent years, his age, and injury problems into consideration, one question still remains, did we experience Plaxico Burress' last season?
