Former Giants receiver Plaxico Burress strolled out of jail Monday wearing a Philadelphia Phillies cap and a big smile after 20 months behind bars on gun charges.
“It’s a beautiful day,” Burress said as he left the medium-security Oneida Correctional Facility in upstate Rome. “It’s a beautiful day to be reunited with my family. I want to go home and spend some quality time with them.”
Wearing shades, Burress thanked God and “all my fans all around the world for the thousands of letters, for their unwavering support.”
