Andy Reid has said the Eagles have "an aggressive plan" for when the lockout ends for addressing the team's needs.

Whether that plan includes wide receiver Plaxico Burress is unknown. In media reports and comments from Burres friend Brandon Jacobs, the Eagles have been linked to Burress, who was released from prison on Monday and has been out of the game for two seasons.
