The New York Daily News reported over the weekend that the Philadelphia Eagles are interested in WR Plaxico Burress, who is scheduled to be released from prison June 6th. Eagles QB Michael Vick is all for it...

"I think with the guys we have now, I think we can fit him in and we can make it work," Vick said Monday on WIP-AM. "Obviously the ultimate goal at the end of the day is to put that ring on your finger at the end of the year.

"I think certainly Plaxico is going to come out with a chip on his shoulder the same way I did, and he'll go out and help this football team to whatever capacity he can," added Vick, who's from the same area of Virginia as Burress and knows his family and friends. "I think the guys would embrace him and bring him in. If that happens, who knows? We talking about 'what ifs' now? It would certainly be a good thing."
If the Eagles can pull this off and Burress is a rehabilitated guy who can get his skills back, he could be a good asset in a year or two.
