McNabb lobbied for Plax

When McNabb lobbied for T.O. last off season it worked.. his attempt to lobby for Plax this off season didn’t.  Foxsports is reporting that Donovan tried to convince the Eagles management that Plax would look good in green.  You can’t argue with DonnyMac, but the price tag the Giants paid was a bit high.

One player who didn’t want to see free-agent WR Plaxico Burress sign with the Giants last week was Eagles QB Donovan McNabb. In fact, McNabb gave Burress a plug with Eagles coaches in the hopes Philadelphia would sign the former Steeler. McNabb and Burress have a long-standing relationship that dates back to their days as basketball players. They also have hung around at Pro Bowls and even spent time together during a game delay caused by an electrical storm last preseason.
