Burress hearts Philly but Eagles shouldn't consider reciprocating - NFL - CBSSports.com
Plaxico Burress is 35 and might have helped turn the Jets toxic last season. Now he wants to move to Philly. Clark Judge has a straight-up warning for the Eagles: Don't let this guy near your young receivers.

Ball is in Jackson's hands now
Last year, the Eagles used the tag on Michael Vick as a formal way to retain his rights. By the time the season began, Vick was playing under a brand-new, fairly negotiated contract. That should be the goal with Jackson.

The DeSean Jackson scenarios
There are now three primary scenarios that could play out in the coming months

Jaiquawn Jarrett Looking To Add Bulk
Jaiquawn Jarrett came to the Eagles ballyhooed as a big hitter. But through all of training camp, the preseason and the regular season, the rookie failed to deliver what could accurately be described as a punishing blow. It’s hard to play fearlessly when you’re still grasping the finer points of a defense, but Jarrett had another issue: He had yet to develop physically. As much as they tried the Eagles couldn’t pack weight onto the 22-year old. He entered the season listed at 6-foot, 196 pounds, and looked thinner at season’s end.

Dawkins didn't see a leader on D for Eagles
Ray Didinger sat down with Brian Dawkins recently to talk about the 2011 Eagles, a team Dawk described as one with tons of talent and expectations but not enough leadership or experience together.
