Plaxico Burress's Home Doubled as an Armory

Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but inside it's even frightful-er. That's the Christmas carol for the Plaxico Burress household this holiday season. Police and investigators from the Manhattan District Attorneys office searched the suspended Giants receiver's abode on Tuesday and found that shooting himself didn't lead him to end his relationship with firearms.

Police seized a loaded .9mm. handgun, a rifle and ammunition to go along with the Glock that fired the bullet that likely ended Burress' career with the defending Super Bowl champs. They also took the sweatpants that Burress wore to the Latin Quarter nightclub on the fateful evening.

Making things even better for Burress is Newsday's report that police found no permits for either gun. That makes it a hat trick, the Glock was also permit-less, and means that the big bowl of water keeps heating up for Burress.

There's very little chance Burress will ever play for the Giants again. As more stuff piles up against him in this criminal matter, it's becoming reasonable to wonder when he'll be playing for anyone else again. If he does jail time, then serves a league-mandated suspension it could be a very long time before he's even eligible to play in a football game. Someone will give him a shot, talent assures you of that, but it may be quite a while before Plax wears a uniform that isn't issued by a warden.
