Sharpshooter Plaxico Burress was on 97.5 with Harry Mayes, Brian Baldinger and his pinky today. One can surmise that there was a singular reason why Burress, who left prison last year wearing a Phillies cap, would go on the radio in Philadelphia. This reason:
“Nothing else would make me happier [than to play for the Eagles]. Obviously, coming to Philadelphia, you know, instituting myself into that offense (???), it just adds a unique dynamic to what’s already in place. You look at LeSean McCoy and what he did this year, having an All-Pro year, probably the best year at running back. Him and Maurice Jones Drew. And everybody knows what DeSean is capable– being one of the most explosive big-play receivers in all of football. And Jeremy Maclin, who is getting better and better. And for myself, I just see myself in that offense being out there on the edge. You talk about all the guys that’s playing in that offense, I mean there are just so many options. You know, I always say, you can neutralize speed, but you can’t neutralize size.”
Burress also said that he talks to Michael Vick “once or twice a week,” not about football. “[Vick] can bring a championship to Philadelphia, and I would love to be a part of that," Burress added.
So, there you have it.
