But today Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson addressed the possibility in an interview with ESPN Radio New York’s Stephen A. Smith, stating:
“With the Giants he was just always a phenomenal receiver. So that’s crazy everybody just talking about the Eagles, asking about other teams. But in my mind, I think he would love to come play for the Eagles, you know, he and Vick — he already kind of had a connection with Vick — with him being in prison and him kind of talking to him before. So it might be a connection, bro, I don’t know. But regardless, I wish the best for him, and if he was to come to Philadelphia I think it would be a dangerous combination.”
If Burress joined the Eagles, just months after his release from prison, I still think that he would be the team’s fourth wide receiver, behind DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, and Jason Avant. But he would definitely be a dangerous receiving threat.
