Wideout Jason Avant Says He Wants Plaxico Burress on the Eagles

On Tuesday, a day after Plaxico Burress’ release from prison, Eagles wideout Jason Avant was asked about the possibility of Burress joining the Birds.

“I really don’t pay attention to that, but I hope he does well, though,” Avant said. “I want him to succeed in whatever he does. If that means Philadelphia, great. We could use him in the red zone.”

The Eagles were 15th in red zone scoring percentage last season (52.46 percent). “We can always use a guy that’s a basketball 6-9 and a football 6-7 in the red zone,” Avant said. Actually, Burress is 6-foot-5. In 10 games in 2008, he caught only four touchdown passes, but in 2007, he caught 12 TD passes. “I believe that he can do it because of what type of talent he was,” Avant said.
