Eagles show interest in non-controversial wide receiver just to mess with everybody

The Eagles are looking into somehow acquiring Greg Jennings from the Packers in response to the Birds’ association with every headline grabbing, malcontent wide receiver in the country from Anquan Boldin and Braylon Edwards to Plaxico Burress and now the Bengals’ Chad Ocho Cinco.

ESPN’s Michael Smith reported this week that the Bengals may try to move Ocho Cinco since not one person left in the city can take someone seriously that legally changed his name to the wrong way to say “eighty-five” in Spanish.

The Eagles have surfaced as a possible destination for yet another one of the NFL’s attention whores due to Eight Five’s close relationship with Donovan McNabb, the amount of cap room the Eagles are hoarding like coins in Scrooge McDuck’s Money Bin and the availability of their first round draft picks. However, the Greg Jennings rumors may put an end to any chance of seeing Eight Five in green this season.

“We are intrigued by what Jennings could bring to the table for us,” Andy Reid said. “He’s more of the wide receiver you want to bring home to mother…not the one you want to choke the life out of. It would definitely be a very refreshing change for us.”
