If Michael Jackson's daughter ever wanted to be a Philadelphia Eagles cheerleader, she is in luck, because the team has a very real and bizarre interest in her.

TMZ reports the King of Pop's daughter is drawing interest from the pro team who just can't get over how much "wow" factor she has. 

In fact, Eagles cheer-honcho Barbara Zaun tells TMZ ... she's seen the footage of Paris shaking her pom poms for her prep school's varsity squad recently and was super impressed ... saying, "We think Paris will make a great Eagle cheerleader!"

"We thought that she had a lot of poise, confidence, and enthusiasm in her cheer performance," Zaun says ... adding, "Paris has that 'wow factor' that makes a great cheerleader." 

Let's be honest, please. I am sure Paris is a brilliant cheerleader, but I have to think her name has something to do with Zaun's sudden interest. 

Unless Paris has the good sense of the Toro's Torrance Shipman and the cumulative talent of the Clovers, she is really just one 14-year-old having a good time. 

Of course, the unfortunate part of being Jackson's child is the spotlight will remain bright for much of her life, whether she wants it or not. 

Not that this should be an issue, because Zaun seems to think she should be used to all the fame by now. 

"She is already very comfortable in the limelight, so we think she would definitely stand out and impress the judges ... We hope that she will try out for the team and be an Eagles cheerleader!"

As noted in the report, the giddy folks over in Philadelphia will have to wait a few years to nab Paris for their cheerleader squad. 

The girl is only 14 years old and the Eagles cheer squad mandates their cheerleaders be 18 and have a high school diploma. 

So perhaps we will have to wait a few years before we ponder the possibilities of Michael Jackson's daughter working an NFL sideline.
