Clearly inspired by our award-winning team checklist series, the Philadelphia Inquirer ran an item Tuesday looking at the ten most important things for the Eagles to address after the lockout.
The list didn’t contain many huge surprises, and intimated that Plaxico Burress will be near the very bottom of any list when free agency hits. It will be more important to get some defensive line help.
Jim Washburn coached up Albert Haynesworth and Jason Babin elsewhere, but the paper calls both players “long shots” to land in Philly.
Babin will cost a lot, but we’re surprised Haynesworth is viewed that way. There doesn’t figure to be a huge market for his services, and his pricetag should be low enough to provide good value. If Washburn can’t get the best from Haynesworth, who can?
We’re still not ruling this marriage out. It makes a lot more sense than Burress joining the Eagles.
