Burress would be a short-term, low-risk, affordable option for the Eagles. It is not a coincidence that when a team has a short quarterback – Mike Vick is closer to 5-10 than his listed 6-0 – and smallish receivers, they have trouble finding each other inside the 20. Down there, the field shrinks and the game resembles a lot of big bodies crammed inside a phone booth. Good luck finding a DeSean Jackson in that mess.
But Plaxico Burress is a guy who stands out in a crowd. He always has.
Burress is clearly interested in the Eagles, but it remains to be seen if the feeling is mutual.
