Plaxico Burress: Eagles 'high on my list' of potential destinations

Free-agent wide receiver Plaxico Burress told a Philadelphia radio station Saturday that he is still hoping to play in 2012 and that the Philadelphia Eagles are "high" on his list of preferred landing spots.

"I think everyone knows how I would feel about being a Philadelphia Eagle," Burress told 97.5's Joe Decamara on Saturday. "If that call comes, nothing more would make me happy."

Burress added that he has talked with Philadelphia head coach Andy Reid "a few months ago," and he has talked to "a few other teams."

Burress has already expressed interest in trying out for the Miami Dolphins this offseason, and he said in June that it would be a "great situation" if he ended up playing for the Carolina Panthers.

So far, though, there has been limited interest in signing Burress. And he couldn't answer when asked why he is not, at this moment, a member of the Eagles as training camp begins.

"I don't make the decisions," Burress said. "If I made the decisions on where I wanted to be right now, I would say the Eagles. But I don't make the decisions in that organization. I expressed my interest and how bad I want to become a Philadelphia Eagle, but it hasn't happened."
The 34-year-old Burress caught 45 passes last year with the New York Jets for 612 yards and eight touchdowns. It was his first season back in the NFL after serving nearly two years in prison on a gun charge.
