The wide receiver who spent some time visiting with prisoners this offseason would like nothing better than to play with the wide receiver who just got out of prison.
DeSean Jackson is all for Plaxico Burress joining forces with the Philadelphia Eagles once the lockout is resolved. Paired with speedy options like Jackson and Jeremy Maclin, Burress could be a solid possession receiver, which he’s been through most of his career.
“Honestly, Plaxico just came out to California, me and him just catching up,” Jackson said to Stephen A. Smith during a visit on ESPN Radio in New York, according to sportsradiointerviews.com. “You know, he was actually a good frind of mine, just looking up to him, playing with the Giants he was just always a phenomenal receiver. So that’s crazy everybody just talking about the Eagles, asking about other teams.
“But in my mind, I think he would love to come play for the Eagles, you know, he and (Michael) Vick — he already kind of had a connection with Vick — with him being in prison and him kind of talking to him before. So it might be a connection, bro, I don’t know. But regardless, I wish the best for him, and if he was to come to Philadelphia I think it would be a dangerous combination.”
Burress, of course, walked out of prison in New York wearing a Phillies hat. Is he just waiting to put an Eagles cap on?
