Philly.com’s Jeff McLane says the talk of the Birds signing former New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress, when he gets out of jail is more talk than anything else. In his twitter feed he says it’s nothing but Burress’ people trying to talk him up.
“One more thing on Plaxico. All this talk about the #Eagles being interested is coming from Plax’s people, not the #Eagles. Trust me on this”.
The Eagles deciding to sign Burress would mean they would be willing to slowdown the progress of second year man Riley Cooper, whom they are very high on.
I still think there’s a chance the Birds could go after him because he wouldn’t be a starter. They would have a package in for him in every game and that package would be especially strong in red zone plays.
