09:48 AM ET 07.17 | Plaxico Burress came out of prison wearing an old-style Phillies hat with a big "P." That "P" was for Philly not for Plaxico. As I reported in June, I think the Eagles will be first in line to sign Burress. He is the big red zone receiver the Eagles need, and he sure hasn't been bashful about hiding his desire to play the City of Brotherly Love. "The Eagles could be the team" one GM said.

And after Vick gets hurt (again) and with Kolb traded... he will have no one to throw him the ball.

But, but.. Philly has strict gun control laws too...

Frankly, Burress will be the same receiver he was undisciplined wise, without being the same receiver he once was talent wise.

As a Giants fan, Philly can have that all day long.

Just don't see it happening

The Eagles have three really good wide receivers and a great tight end. So, signing Plaxico might just be a smoke screen so that other teams will over pay for him. They need defense and offensive line help.

They will be just fine. Vick has as much chance of staying on the field as any other qb. Burress would be a nice red zone target.

There is not a strong possibility of that happening....

Actually both guys are more valuable after their prison experience as they can now play the center position as well as their regular spots.

He's had 2 years staring at a wall to think this over, so no one can say that after he choses the team he will play for that it was not a well thought out decision.

The 'P' on his hat stands for 'Phelon' ;)
