Plaxico Burress Owes $59,000 In Back Taxes 55

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  roster spot before the NFL season kicks off. As previously stated, the Oakland Raiders have neither confirmed or denied a mutual interest regarding signing the fresh-out-of-prison, wrong-side-of-30 receiver.

Similar to Terrell Owens claiming he still has something left in the tank, Burress made similar claims when he was released from prison earlier this year. I see no reason why a team that needs a receiver wouldn’t take a flyer on Plax, he wouldn’t command much money and it’s a win-win if he produces.
