NFL - Scoop Du Jour

Former New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress(notes) is going to be released early from prison in about two or three weeks due to his good behavior, a source that's visited him told the New York Post. And the paper reports that the Giants are interested in re-signing the man who took a gun into a Manhattan nightclub and accidentally shot himself in the leg late in 2008.

Burress is still likely to get a suspension from the league and be released into work-release that will preclude him from rejoining his former team right away.

When he finally becomes available, though, Giants general manager Jerry Reese told the Post, "We'll definitely investigate it."
