WR Plaxico Burress wants to be a Philadelphia Eagle. He can’t make that any more clear. Burress was open about that desire last offseason when he famously emerged from prison wearing a Phillies hat. And even before his one-year contract with the Jets expired, he made that interest known again.
Now, it seems that the Eagles are one of several currently “in contact” with Burress, per Jason LaCanfora of NFL.com.
In his return to the NFL, Plax had 45 receptions for 612 yards and eight touchdowns.
We’ll see if this year Burress finally gets his wish to fly in Eagles green with his friend Mike Vick.
