Plaxico Burress is aiming to get out of jail and return to the NFL next season, his agent says.

"I am not a big advocate of making predictions on teams because so much can change, but I am not afraid to make the following prediction: Plaxico Burress will be playing in 2011," agent Drew Rosenhaus told ESPN.

Burress, a former New York Giants and Pittsburgh Steelers receiver, is scheduled to be released June 6 if he receives credited time for good behaviour.

Burress, 33, was sentenced in September 2009 to two years in prison after pleading guilty to a weapons charge.

Burress, who caught the winning touchdown for the Giants over the New England Patriots in the final minute of Super Bowl XLII, hasn't played since the 2008 season.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has ruled that Burress would be reinstated and eligible to sign with a team after finishing his sentence.
