Report: Plaxico Burress Wants To Play For The Philadelphia Eagles

By Spike Eskin

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Former New York Giants and New York Jets wide receiver Plaxico Burress wants to play for the Philadelphia Eagles next season, according 94 WIP’s Howard Eskin via a Twitter report.

Last season was Burress’ first in the league since serving almost two years in prison for criminal possession of a weapon and reckless endangerment, after he accidentally shot himself in a New York nightclub. When Burress was released from prison, he was wearing a Phillies hat, fueling rumors he wanted to play for the Eagles last season.

Burress, 34 years old,  caught 45 passes for 613 yards and eight touchdowns for the Jets last season. In 144 games with the Steelers, Giants and Jets, Burress has 550 receptions for 8457 yards and 63 touchdowns.

    Sandusky for coach…I like that idea. If the players don’t win games they have to “go to the showers” with the coach…and get “soaped up” if you know what I mean.

    I’d rather see “Plexiglas” sing with the Wranglers of the indoor football league. Coupled with T.O. they’d make a great tandem

    NO MORE CRIMINALS

    WHO CARES WHO THE IGGLES GET! THEY WILL NOT GET TO SUPER BOWL WITH ANDY REID AS COACH!!

    I welcome Plaxico, he’d be great if we’re to lose DeSean and it looks like we will. As far as Eskin goes well I wish we could somehow trade him to Seattle.

    Vick, Burress, just add Sandusky and they can become “the jail birds!

    Calm down everyone! This is only Howard Eskin predicting this and his predictions are always wrong. This is the same guy who said the Eagles were on the verge of signing Farve when Vick got hurt.
