Plaxico Burress will not be getting out of jail as early as he'd like. The former Giants WR applied for work release but was denied by the New York Department of Correctional Services, according to the NY Post. Burress made the application just a few months into his two-year sentence for attempted criminal possession of a weapon last year. He has a month to appeal the decision and can reapply in July.
