Plaxico Burress is a 35-year-old wide receiver whose best days are in the rearview. He missed two NFL seasons while sitting in prison after committing one of the more ridiculous crimes ever committed by a professional athlete, and that is still saying something. With decreasing numbers and increasing age, Burress should be hoping to settle for any team who is willing to pay him just to show up to training camp. But alas, that is not the case with Burress. Now, I will be the first to admit that I was pulling for Burress to succeed in his first season back last year with the New York Jets.

Plaxico Burress Owes $59,000 In Back Taxes

Amid rumors that former Super Bowl winning wide receiver Plaxico Burress is interested in playing for the Oakland Raiders, reports have now surfaced that Plax has a tax lien placed on him by the State of New York because he owes them $59,000 in back taxes. If Burress was desperate to catch on with a team before this situation, I imagine he will be trying even harder to earn a ...
