Plaxico Burress Has Nice Choice in Headwear, Vegas Loves Him in Philly

Jun 7, 2011, 1:31 AM EDT

Yes, for some strange reason, Plaxico Burress was wearing a retro Phillies cap when he left prison on Monday morning. Did he win the hat in a inter-prison poker game? Not likely.

My bet? That intrepid agent of his, Drew Rosenhaus, thought his client wearing a cap of a team from Philadelphia would garner a bit of media attention. Not bad, Rosenhaus. You win.

What goes on in Rosenhaus’ head is unclear exactly, but for some reason everyone seems to think Philly is a favorite to land Burress’ services. While it seems like a bizarre move given the Eagles currently very solid receiving corp, Vegas loves Burress to the Eagles.

The odds, courtesy of Bodog, of where Burress will end up.
