Brandon Jacobs of The Giants Says Eagles Are a ‘Favorite’ For Plaxico Burress

 

Is Plaxico Burress on His Way to Philadelphia?

ESPN writer Adam Schefter spoke to New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs today about the Giants taking back free agent wide receiver Plaxico Burress, and he said that the Giants chances of resigning Burress are “slim to none.” Then Jacobs went onto say this, “There is no chance Plaxico Burress is a New York Giant after he comes home.”

Apparently Jacobs talks to Burress regularly, despite that he is in jail, and they have discussed what Burress’ plans are once he is released from jail and the NFL lockout is lifted and he can sign a contract. According to Schefter, Jacobs gave the NFL world a sneak preview of what his plans are, and that includes claiming that the Eagles are ‘a favorite’ of Burress.

There have been rumors circulating that Burress and the Eagles were interested in one another. This could be a huge pick-up for the Eagles and would give them arguably the best starting wide receiver corps in the NFL. The trifecta of DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, and Burress would give defenses across the NFL nightmares, and would be essentially impossible to slow down or stop.

Philadelphia has probably the best media situation to take on another ex-convict as they have already broken the ice with Michael Vick. If Vick is any correlation to what Andy Reid and the Eagles organization can do with players that have been out of football and in jail, Philadelphia needs to sign Burress the day he gets out of jail, which is June sixth, or next Monday.

The Eagles may be able to establish their own, ‘Big Three’ if they sign Burress.
