Former Giants receiver Plaxico Burress has made no secret of his wish to join the Eagles, and the feeling is mutual, according to Philadephia wideout DeSean Jackson. 

The two spoke recently when Burress was in California, and Jackson said he'd love to have Burress as a teammate.  

"In my mind, I think he would love to come play for the Eagles," Jackson told Stephen A. Smith on 1050 ESPN Radio in New York, according to SportsRadioInterviews.com. "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, I don't know. Regardless, I wish the best for him, and if he was to come to Philadelphia, I think it would  be a dangerous combination." 

Burress hasn't played since the 2008 season, when he accidentally shot himself in a New York nightclub. He was given a two-year prison sentence, and was released last month. Burress can't sign until a new collective bargaining agreement is reached between the league and the players.
