Plaxico Burress lobbies again for Eagles

From: Redzone.org

Plaxico Burress told 97.5 The Fanatic today that "nothing else would make me happier" than to play for the Eagles according to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The New York Jets receiver, who is set to become a free agent on March 13, echoed statements that he made several times last offseason when he was unemployed, out of prison, and looking for a job. Despite that campaign -- and the lobbying of his friend, quarterback Michael Vick -- the Eagles chose not to sign Burress.

He said there was a "a lot of interest" from the Eagles last July, but apparently they didn't believe he was worth the $3 million the Jets eventually shelled out in a one-year deal. The Eagles would later sign another former New York Giants receiver -- Steve Smith -- for just over $2 million, but that acquisition proved to be a bust.
