Howard Eskin: Plaxico Burress Wants To Play For The Eagles

WIP’s Howard Eskin ran into Jets wide receiver Plaxico Burress at the Super Bowl and he says Burress wants to play for the Eagles in 2012. 

It’s not a surprise to me because the Eagles were very close to signing Burress last year right after the lockout.  They weren’t able to get a deal done with him and he subsequently signed with the New York Jets.  Unfortunately, the Birds took the money and signed Steve Smith.  We know how that worked out.

The Eagles need a guy like Burress in their receiver corps.  They’ve had so many problems in the red zone, a 6’5″ target like Burress would be just what the doctor ordered.  He would make life easier for Michael Vick because his height and long arms would be perfect for the alley-oop.  Burress can bring passes that are any where near him.

I think everything the Birds do offensively, should be to help Vick.  I think DeSean Jackson and Burress would be a good solution for 2012.  They should franchise Jackson and sign Burress, then if it doesn’t work, they can get rid of the entire group next year; Andy Reid, Vick, Jackson and Burress.

  1. What do you Offer Plex Contract Wise..

  2. Might as well sign him. Riley Cooper does not seem to know how to fight for the football. If it does not come directly to him, he figures, might as well let somebody intercept it.

  3. Kick Steve Smith to the curb, and give plaxico his money.

  4. Do you think he would take similar money to what we gave Steve Smith last year?

    I would agree with G….DJax, Maclin, Burress, Celek & Avant would be a decent group of targets for Vick.

  5. Since this report came from Howard Eisken, I think that I will pass on believing it. Don’t believe a word he says, he gets in the faces of players on the team and will turn his back and attempt to rip them apart on his radio station and in television interviews, pretty much the same way G.Cobbs does.

    But as far as Plax coming to the Eagles, I think he would be a good edition to the team.

  6. I believe Jets gave Plax a 3mil contract, Eagles gave Smith a 5 mil contract, easy to say he’ll take that money…

  7. I thin Plex can be had for $1.5 to $2 Million Salary, maybe oad up some Incentive $$ for TD,Catchces made,etc,etc..
    Last year was a fluke for what Eagles paid both VY & Steve Smith for Fantasy GM Roseman didn’t know what the hell he was doing and will not have that kind of leeway for paying back-up/situational players big time $$$..

  8. Am I wrong, or should the Birds be in good shape cap-wise with all of the 1-year deals they signed last year? Pman, is that right?

  9. Gcobb where’s my check? haha.. I reported this a few hours ago… This signing is a no brainer. They should have signed him a year ago but they didnt listen to Hartrodamus, shame on them.. He had 8 tds mostly in the redzone 45 rec 612 yards.. Id take that any day.. He may be worth at least 1-2 mil for a 1yr deal.. This isnt risky it can only help your team..

  10. Easgles have some Roster Bonus/Big Salaries in 2012

    CB Samuel due to earn $9.5
    DE C Jenkins a $5 Million Roster Bonus March 8th, then his $3.5 Salary
    DE D Tapp a $3.8 Salary for 2012
    then you add CB Asmo’s $11 Million and QB Vick’s $16 Million and LT J Peters,DE Cole and DE Brandon Graham’s Rookie Deal and you have about
    .40 % of the Eagles Salary Cap with only these 8 Players
    Ass in D-Jax, E Mathis, Dixon and the Eagles have probably1/2 their Cap $$ with only a dozen players..

  11. meant to post “add” in D-Jax/Mathis/Dixon new Deals and maybe a new deal for McCoy and now they are probably 50% of more of their Cap for 12-13 Players

  12. Hahaha paulman has a sick mind.. ugh what a slip up.. grief “ass in d-jax” haha! priceless

  13. He’s tall: At least Vick would be able to see him when he throws downfield…

  14. GET SLICK VICK SOME COMPETION IN TRAINING CAMP. THATS WHY HE SUCKED LAST YEAR HE HAD NO COMP TO MAKE HI BETTER. WHEN KOLD WAS HERE HE JUST WASNT THE STARTER UNTIL KOLD GOT HURT HE DIDNT OUT RIGHT WIN THE JOB AND THE EAGLES ARE PAYING FOR IT. GET PEYTON IN HERE TO AT LEAST MAKE MIKE BEAT OUT ONE OF THE REAL ELITE QBS. IF HE CAN DO THAT HE MIGHT GET SOMEWHERE. THINK ABOUT IT, IF YO UGOT PEYTON ON THE SIDELINES WAITING FOR SLICK VICK TO DO SOME DUMB ISH AND GET HURT AND NEVER GET HIS JOB BACK, JUST MIGHT MAKE HIM PLAY SMARTER PLUS HE CAN LEARN PROPERLY HOW TO READ DEFENSES BETTER THAN DOUG PENDERSON.. WE GOT HOWARD MUDD HERE MIGHT AS WELL BRING IN MANING. A PEYTON AT 80% PLAYS BETTER THAN A 100% VICK ANYDAY. HIS GAME SMARTS ALONE WILL COVER THE OTHER 20% MISSING. IT A NO BRAINER. BECASUE VICK WILL NOT GET BETTER NEXT YEAR, HE IS STUCK IN HIS 20 YEARS OF PLAYING HIS WAY FOOTBALL MODE. AND THATS HOW HUMANS ARE. THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO THINK VICK WILL GET BETTER IS THE DELUSIONAL COACHING STAFF AT THE NOVA CARE CENTER. EITHER GET A REAL QB IN HERE TO PUSH VICK OR YOU CAN PUT MONEY ON IT YO WILL HAVE LESS EAGLES FANS NEXT YEAR.

  15. I didnt think about this before but the eagles may target a guy who has what both desean and plax have speed and height and that is none other than Vincent Jackson. Talk about a game breaker who is fast and is very tall 6’4 6’5 230, hes a beast… talk about a redzone threat this guy can go up in double coverage and come down with that thing..

  16. I JUST WANTED TO PIGGY BACK OFF MY LAST COMMENT ABOUT THE EAGLES. THE FRONT OFFICE NEEDS TO BE AWARE THE ONLY REASON THEY DONE SO WELL IN SALES IS BECASUE THE EAGLES HAVE BEEN ON THE TV MORE LATELY WHICH GAVE US ALOT OF FAKE ASS BAND WAGON RIDING FANS AND A BUNCH OF WOMAN WHO ONLY WANTED TO PARTY IN THE BARS SO THEY BECAME INSTANT FANS. THEY WASNT THERE WHEN WE SUCKED AND SEE HOW MANY TURNED THERE BACK AFTER 1 SEASON OF DOING BAD THEY ALL TRASHED OUR TEAM. GET IT RIGHT AND SIGN PEYTON FOR THE TEAMS SAKE AND REAL HOPES OF WINNIGN A SUPER BOWL NOT JUST A GOT DAMN CHAMPIONSHIP. THATS NOT THE SUPER BOWL DUMMY. IT MEANS NOTHING WHEN YOU WALK INTO THE OWNERS MEETING IN THE BEGINING OF THE YEAR AND ALL THE OTHER OWERS IN OUR DIVISION HAVE THAT SHINY RING ON AND YOU BRING YOUR DAMN OSCAR AWARD JEFFERY. FOOTBALL PEOPLE MAKE FOOTBALL DECISIONS NOT ACCOUNTANTS. YOU DONT WANT CHANNEY DOING THE TEAMS FINANCECS DO YO JUST BECASUE HE CAN DO HIS OWN ? THEN PAY THAT GUY FROM ESPN TO DRAFT YOUR PLAYERS BECASUE YOU NEED HELP.

    WE WENT FROM A FEARED TEAM TO BEING CALLED SOFT AS DRUG STORE COTTON. NOW THAT IS BAD WHEN YOU PLAY A MANS SPORT AND YOU GET DIRESPECTED THAT BAD AND GET CALLED SOFT. ARE YOU SOFT VICK? ARE YOU SOFT ANDY? HOW ABOUT YOUR JEFF, I ALREADY KNOW HOWIE IS WHATS NEW..

  17. Scramz– your real name should be “scam” artist being that you took everything i said under the peyton manning article…

    Gosh does anyone other than myself and a select few have a mind of there own on here?

  18. JH,
    C’Mon Man, The Eagles will not pursue V-Jax due to his big asking price and baggage..(they don’t view WR’s as big contract type of players)
    Why don’t you just post that the Eagles are going sign QB D Brees or RB Ray Rice .. You are starting throw darts at every big name out .. Keep dreaming..

  19. I think I said that about V Jackson a couple weeks ago…doesn’t Jon Hart have an original thought?? LOL

  20. Greenfan you could of said that but i dont read anything you post so no thats not the case haha.. post something with substance

  21. Paul you never know.. the birds will have money to spend. Alot of the guys that were once on the team arent going to be there this year..

  22. Paul you never know.. the birds will have money to spend. Alot of the guys that were once on the team arent going to be there this year..

  23. I wonder if Steve Smith got payed a share of the Giants Super Bowl winnings
    for doing so poorly for the Eagles.

  24. Oh well…the Paulman wannabe, Jon “I said that” Hart just said I have no substance…funny thing is…he wasn’t the first to write that!!

  25. Greenfan– then it must be true genius you lack substance.. and as for you saying i mimick anyone on here is humorous.. anything i say on this site is derived from myself. I dont copy n paste or say anything that another person says.. i ll leave that to you guys on here that are famous for doing that..

  26. duhh…me to dum to coment

  27. And green i see that your a fan of mine being that you just mentioned what i say and i dont have a clue what you post bc i dont follow.. but i love my fan’s.. so just for you im going to give you a new nickname. Instead of greenfan your new name is Hartfan.. haha

  28. Jon hart, try to limit the length of your posts

  29. vinnietheevictor

    Plaxico Buress.

    Exactly what the eagles need. Another sidways hat wearing guy. Don’t have enough of those already.

  30. That sounded very stereotypical.. whats wrong with wearing a hat turned sideways? I personally dont but for you to say that is kinda foul and a stereotype of comment..

  31. Can someone please give Jon Hart the narcissist test…..I believe we have a winner here.

  32. Plaxico Burress wanted to cone to philly last year but the Jets overpaid for his services yet did have a productive year.. steve smith on the other hand did nada for us.. he played scared and looked unsure and unhealthy.. with all that said he ll probably be an eagle again.. The eagles should have signed burress last year like i said a million times now but didnt listen.. we couls have used those 8tds he had, mostly all in the redzone… they still have a chance to sign him on the cheap in this buyers market.

  33. Hartfan– yes i passed the test iam a certified narcissist and i have plenty of reasons to be.. Im hot, smart, hilarious, your owner, witty, did i say hot?, wealthy.. um am i missing anything? Oh the personification of greatness in the flesh.. you should be honored that im even conversing with you right now but like i said, I luv my fans.. haha

  34. green – back the hell off there buddy – that’s my test…….
    I would take Plexico in a heartbeat – for those of us ‘old timers’ we long for the days of Harold (just throw me the ball and I will lay down for two yards) Carmicheal – please learn the fade pattern – two steps – look – throw……..

    I think some might be missing the bigger picture of how Burress can help Vick – what did Eli Manning due every time he was gatting blitzed and about to be sacked – he heaved the ball downfield to Burress – what batter way to help Vick with blitz reads then give him a guy that he can throw the ball to along the sidleine and let him outjump/reach the other guy… yeah – no brainer – I don’t care which direction his hat faces if he can help in the red zone – give him a nice incentive laden contract – why not

  35. OK – I take that back as I woul never refer to myself as hot – my wife yes, me…. not so much

  36. exactly navy…having 2 outlets…Burress and Celek could really make a difference for Vick this year…not to mention the ever present RedZone problem

  37. A big WR could be Braylon Edwards or L Nannee from the Panthers..

  38. I’ll trust you on that Pman cause I don’t think I even know who Nannee is? Wasn’t there some talk a year or two back about Edwards coming to Philly – but wasn’t the knowck he dropped the ball too much??

  39. so sorry mr. Hart please dont think for one second that i actually read your thoughts. I am just a fan like you who is only speaking his OWN mind. I am quite sure you see what i see and are fed up just like me. instead of the name calling why not think GREAT FANS THINK ALIKE….Im with you Big dawg not aginst you..LOL

  40. This is what i didnt want to see happen. We are so upset with this team we are turning against one another. Listen to yourselves. We are supposed to be viewing our opinion on here about our team and hope to God someone hears our thoughts. I listen to Angelo in the morning putting negative thoughts in fans heads and he admits to liking to start trouble and now the city is covered in bad vibes. We are supposed to cheer for our teams and support them not tear them down.The city of brotherly love is negitive love.

    Lets try this one last time and turn it around and start supporting our teams and send out positive vibes. When our friends or kids do good we praise them and when they do something wrong we dont yell at them we still are behind them in some type of way. And humans respond to positive vibes better than negative. So lets stop listening to the Howard Eskins and Angelo cattaldis of philly and start calling up and asking the players for there best effort and we will be behind them 100% because we know they want to win. I am sure that if the city was doing this for those other humans that happen to play sports in our area they would leave it on the field, ice, hardwood floor or diamond. Come on some body got to fell me. I know most of you will rip me for this but we got to try something. We dont have a choice. Lets let brizz know we support him when he saves 30 shots but MISSES 1. Really guys. All the negitive has got to stop. If 2012 is the end i At least want my team to be spoken about like they are going o do it. LETS DO IT PHILLY BRING BACK B DAWK AND LETS SEND OUT CRAZY VIBES ACROSS THE CITY . PHILLY BRING BACK THE LOVE. IM DEAD SERIOUS!!!!

  41. it’s official….Riley Cooper….another early round bust. He was supposed to be the the red zone threat,,,,remember?

    green vomit

  42. you guys must see these stats..

    this is proof we’ll never win with Reid…..

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1059636-philadelphia-eagles-andy-reids-struggles-in-winning-time

  43. For those who would like to know why the Giants leapfrogged over the Eagles to bag 2 SB rings?

    Modrak’s apprentice with the Eagles Marc Ross,

    who heads up the Giants college scouting operation, spent seven years with the Eagles. He is a very sharp young guy who played football at Princeton and worked as an Eastern regional scout with the Eagles before taking a front office post with Buffalo. He was hired by the Giants five years ago and the Giants have done a better job drafting college talent than the Eagles in that time.

    Ross has interviewed for the general manager’s job with a few teams, including Chicago this year. It is only a matter of time before some team hires him. He knows talent. He was the one who believed in Brian Westbrook when other scouts dismissed him as a little guy from a small school. He helped convince the Eagles to take Westbrook in the 2002 draft.

  44. I like Burress…I LOVE Vincent Jackson. I don’t know that you can claim to be a team built for superbowl dreams if you have a true beast of a WR available through free agency to you and you pass on him to get someone well past their prime. To me…again this is a situation where you end up having to trade Maclin and probably Avant to re-build your WR corp. To me the Jackson and Jackson combo is key first and then adding Burress, keeping Cooper and round the 6 WR rotation out with fresh faces (maybe Gilyard, maybe a draft pick.)

  45. You make some good points Butch and thanks for the history lesson on Marc Ross Songs. Wish we would of kept a guy like that around to draft some maulin studs for us. I.M.O., If vick cuts down on his int’s, we get burress and Franchise Djax to see how he does, we will win the SB. If Vick stays in the pocket and just throw the ball away in crucial situations, we’ll be alright.

  46. Dwayne Bowe is only 27 years old 6’2 220 and can do it all similar to Vincent Jackson.. so if desean doesnt return then they may go for Bowe… id prefer them franchise desean then sign burress though…

  47. Not if he is being signed to replace DJax! If He is a low salary complimentary signing, along with Bowe, VJax, or Colston, then yes. Other than that who cares. Paul, get rid of Samuel & Tapp’s combined $13.3M salaries & we won’t have any problems.
    JH, you nor original, nor come up with anything on your own. You say $#!t then say it was your idea. You are an egotistical, delusional jack@$$! Along with Paul, & a few others, I have been discussing replacements for DJax for several months. Including my favorite Bowe, VJax & Colston. Get a life, you lifeless @$$clown! How you can look at yourself in the mirror, without bursting out in never ending laughter, is beyond me. Because you are a joke my man! As Paulman & Leonis, would say, “Good grief!”

  48. Coming into this late, but I would love this signing. A big red zone target and an actually difference maker who can take a hit.

  49. I don’t see the KC Chiefs letting Bowe leave, they will most likley franchise him
    I wouldn’t mind seeing a Plaxico Burress on a 2 Year Deal for $3.5 Deal with some incentives for Receptions, TD’s, gYArds, Games played.. etc,etc.. Then Draft a burner out of College like Joe Adams, Jarius Wright from Arkansas to replace D-JAx as far as a deep threat..

  50. I dont see the bowe signing happening for the birds esp being that teams will use the franchise tag on there premier guys.. colston,bowe,welker,djacc and others.. best bet is for the birds is to do what i said they should have done a yr ago… sign plaxico to a 1 or 2 yr deal. And that would solve all the problems as long as they bring djacc back thats the only way this will work.
