The Eagles are first in line to acquire Plaxico Burress, according to the prevailing theory.
There's one problem with this premise: It isn't likely.
Last week, the New York Post reported the Eagles will likely sign the former New York Giants receiver once he is released from the Oneida Correctional Facility on Monday.
On Thursday, Giants running back Brandon Jacobs told New York reporters that Burress had the Eagles at the top of his wish list. The New York Daily News, citing an NFL source, wrote that the Eagles were "absolutely interested in pursuing" him.
