Plaxico Burress would be a perfect fit for the Eagles
Sure, the guy is coming off a jail sentence of one year and eight months for illegal possession of a handgun.
And, yeah, he's not a Mensa. I mean, the guy almost blew his you-know-what off when the gun he stuffed into his pants went off, shooting him in the thigh in a night club in November of 2008.
All of that said Burress is - or at least was - a very good football player. The way the NFL is you don't want a Rhodes Scholar as your go-to guy in the red zone.
Burress' craziness and his height (6-5) are just what the Eagles need. Michael Vick could lob jump balls to him all afternoon. It's too good to be true.
