Burress open to Spagnuolo reunion

Plaxico Burress

Florio mentioned late last night (or early this morning) how Brandon Jacobs is convinced Plaxico Burress is leaving the Giants, with the Eagles the most likely landing spot for him.

The Rams could be another possibility.

“I’ve heard him say that, too, yeah,” Jacobs told Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger. “He said he wouldn’t mind going out there to play for ‘Spags.’”

The Rams make a lot of sense to us despite a deep roster at receiver. Ralph Vacciano of the New York Daily News writes that the Eagles are “absolutely interested” in Burress, but who knows if they’ll be willing to pay much with an extension for DeSean Jackson looming on the horizon.

Burress may not be in a position to pick and choose where he goes, especially if he wants to be paid like a starter, not a 34-year-old that hasn’t played in the NFL since November of 2008.
