Plaxico Burress: “Nothing Else Would Make Me Happier (Than to Play for Eagles)”

image from i2.listal.com

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.

    Did he actually say “PARTY”?

    The Eagles don’t have a number one, go-to receiver. They should grab him.

    They should absolutely pick him up…he’s a real straight shooter.

    He would be a great Red-Zone option, but there is a problem, Plax and Vick are legally NOT allowed to be within 100 yards of each other.

    They should grab someone of his calibre. I am sure he has experience in the shotgun, so the Birds should definately take a shot. All they have to do is pull the trigger.

    They won’t sign him, just for the fact he said he wants to play for the eagles a la nick Barnett last yr

    a role model for DeSean – and another pearl in Andy’s felon collection – that would 2 on offense (that we know of) and two at home.
    When does Lawrence Phillips get released? Rae Carruth coming up for parole soon?
    We could use some killers on defense, why does Marty get all the gems?

    Great, more ex-con thugs on our football team. Anything else the Eagles front office can do to make this team more unlikable?
