When receiver Plaxico Burress emerged from prison last year wearing a Phillies hat, many took that gesture to mean he wanted to play for the Eagles.
He didn’t in 2011, but he wants to in 2012.
Howard Eskin of NBC 10 in Philadelphia reports that he ran into Burress at the Super Bowl, and that Burress said he wants to play for the Eagles “badly.”
Eskin says that coach Andy Reid considered bringing Burress to Philly last season, and Eskin believes that the Eagles may make a run at him in 2012.
Burress currently remains under contract with the Jets. He’ll become a free agent on March 13.
