Plaxico Burress: Why Playing for Philadelphia Eagles Makes the Most Sense
Plaxico Burress is a free man, but he doesn't have home. The former New York Giant wants to return to the NFL, but the current lockout is preventing him from signing with a team.
Despite not having played for two years, there are a few teams that will be vying for Burress' services next year. The team that Burress would love to play for is the Philadelphia Eagles, which would be the best fit for him.
Burress was asked via Twitter how long it would take for him to sign with the Eagles once the lockout is over. His response: “As soon as they will have me!”
He could have been just making a fans day by tweeting back at them, but this is something to take note of. Athletes and celebrities are asked a ton of questions on Twitter everyday. They can't respond to all of course, but the nice ones try to do their best to answer as many questions as possible.
Asked daily about where he'd like to play, Burress' first answer back happens to be about the Eagles. It's obvious that he wants to play for them, but will Philadelphia sign him?
The New York Jets are another team that Burress has thought about, but it wouldn't be the right place for Burress. Yes, he might see more playing time and be a more featured player, but being back in New York is not where he needs to be.
He needs to start fresh somewhere else, and not in the same city that he was arrested in. With the Eagles he will be with a close friend in Michael Vick, as well as a position to catch a lot of touchdowns.
The Eagles need a red-zone target, and at 6'5" Burress would definitely give them that. The Eagles would give Burress a place to start anew and get his life turned around. If he wants to play there, then the Eagles need to make it happen.
