Odds On Plaxico Burress' Next NFL Team Starts With Philadelphia Eagles

Apparently the Philadelphia Eagles are the favorite to sign recently released WR Plaxico Burress. The former New York Giants WR exited an upstate New York prison on Monday morning after a nearly two-year sentence for violating New York gun laws. 

BetOnline.com has come out with the latest odds on where Burress will sign and atop the list is the Philadelphia Eagles. There have already been rumors that Burress would like to play in Philly so this doesn't come as a major surprise. The Eagles are followed by the New York Jets and Chicago Bears as teams that have the best odds of signing him.

The St. Louis Rams and Minnesota Vikings come in as the fourth and fifth teams most likely to sign him. St. Louis, I think, would be a very good spot for him. The Rams were on the cusp of the playoffs in 2010 and giving QB Sam Bradford another deep target would help them immensely.

Of course, Burress' future depends on two key factors. First, what kind of shape is he in? He hasn't caught a pass since November of 2008 so that's a big question that needs to be answered. Second, when will the NFL lockout end? It would be difficult for a team to sign Burress and teach him the offense if the lockout extends into August or September.

So Burress is finally out but, thanks to the lockout, we'll be waiting to find out where he lands next. Check out another list of potential landing spots for Burress
