One year later, Plaxico Burress is still pushing to join the Philadelphia Eagles.
Burress appeared on 97.5 The Fanatic on Tuesday and said, “nothing else would make me happier” than joining the Eagles. Buress said the Eagles had “a lot” of interest in him last year. (Although not enough to out-spend the Jets.)
The Eagles need red zone help. That’s basically Plaxico’s role at this stage of his career. It was reported by Adam Caplan of SiriusXM that the Eagles would have interest in Burress. We can’t imagine there will be great competition for his services.
The Jets paid Burress $3 million on a one-year contract last offseason. There was an element of risk because no one knew what Burress would look like after his prison sentence.
Now we know what Burress looks like: A role player. There’s not a lot of reason to think Burress will get a better contract this offseason.
