    Plaxico Burress spent last season, his first since being released from prison, playing in New York, but instead of playing for his former team, the Giants, Burress signed on to play one season with the rival Jets. Burress told WCAU-TV while in Indianapolis for Super Bowl XLVI that he wants to play for the Philadelphia Eagles. It was thought the Eagles would take a hard look at Burress last offseason following the successful return of Michael Vick from a prison sentence. The Eagles reportedly had some interest, although it was tepid. This time around, the Eagles face an uncertain offseason when it comes to their wide receivers, DeSean Jackson is a free agent and is coming off a season in which he failed to eclipse 1,000 yards receiving for the first time since his 2008 rookie campaign and it's possible the Eagles could use the franchise tag on Jackson, although head coach Andy Reid hasn't given any indication of the team's plans.

    Meh. If we can get a good deal I'm all about it. He, like Vick seems to have come out of prison with a fresh perspective. I think after a full season this past year and some time with our offense he might end up a pretty option.
