Plaxico Burress Is Released From Jail With A Phillies Cap OnBREAKING NEWS, Eagles, News, Wide Receivers Monday, June 6th, 2011
Maybe it was just a coincidence, but then again may be it wasn’t. Former Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress was released from Oneida Correctional Facility in Rome, N. Y., this morning and he came out of jail sporting a Philadelphia Phillies hat.
Who knows this could be an indication that he either wants to sign with the Eagles that he knows the deal is already done. I’m sure he knows about the stories circulating about the Birds interest in him.
You and I know that Burress and his agent, Drew Rosenhaus know about the passionate nature of Philadelphia sports fans. They know that him putting that hat on his head could send the town into a frenzy.
Jeff McLane of Philly.com reported a week ago that all of the reports about the Eagles being interested in Burress, were being hatched by Rosenhaus and his staff, so he didn’t think they needed to be taken seriously.
Rosenhaus has been known to do much worse than planting stories to increase the attention teams might give his clients.
Whatever the case it opened the door to a great deal of speculation.
