On Eagles radar: Plax, Reggie Bush and Haynesworth

When Mike Silver sources information, you can count on its authenticity.
Silver says impending free agents wide receiver Plaxico Burress and running back Reggie Bush interest the Eagles (
Also Birds defensive line coach Jim Washburn wants D-tackle Albert Haynesworth 'badly.' Haynesworth still is property of the Redskins, who disciplined him last season.
The piece also intimates the Eagles believe they can win the Super Bowl this season. With a productive Burress here's a yay vote. He's lethal in the red zone. Two years away from the game won't diminish that talent.
I'm not so sure about Haynesworth, who has so much baggage he's not worth the effort. He seems like trouble looking for a place to happen.
Reggie Bush? If he's healthy, why not? The Eagles' future is now. Vick is about to turn 31 and inviyes injury with his style of play.
Andy Reid, in his 13th year, also is at a crossroads. The only coach who won a SB with that long of a tenure with the same team is Bill Cowher, with the Steelers.

Reid tells NFL Coaches Association what they can do with their 'brief'

Makes sense. Several coaches have taken paycuys or furloughs due to the lockout. Oh, and the Eagles coaches have not been affected - yet.
Hence this statement Thursday from Andy Reid:
"The Eagles coaching staff was not aware that a brief s being filed by the NFL Coaches Association in the 8th Circuit Court against the NFL Owners last week. We were surprised by the filing and do not support it in any way.”
