Eagles In Discussions With WR Plaxico Burress



It’s been tough to cover this team over the past week. Frankly, I don’t think I could have handled another Evan Mathis story.

So as we’ve desperately waited for substantial news on the free agency front, the Eagles have produced none as they’ve yet to ink any free agents from other teams almost six full days into the signing period.

But late Sunday we’ve finally heard some quiet rumblings about the team’s interest in a player that could help solve the Eagles’ well-documented redzone woes.

According to multiple reports, the Eagles have held discussions with free agent WR Plaxico Burress.

Burress, who racked up 45 catches for 612 yards and 8 touchdowns last season, hasn’t been shy in letting it be known that he’d like to team up with Michael Vick in Philadelphia this season.

But Burress is talking with other unidentified teams, and it’s unclear what type of contract he is looking for. It’s safe to assume the Eagles won’t break the bank on Burress, who is the last legitimate big-name receiver on the market sans RFA Mike Wallace.

But maybe…just maybe we’ll be back with some news of the Eagles first “splash” of the offseason. Stay tuned.
