The problem with these two;
-34 years old
-Not in football shape (Hasn't played since 2008)
-Still faces disciplinary action from NFL
-Could be wrong but pretty sure he's under contract with the Giants through 2012 season
-Gives up on plays, lacks self-discipline
-Indicted for sexual assault charges, facing disciplinary action from judge and NFL
-Facing charges for assault during a road rage incident, could see disciplinary action from NFL
-Has shown lack of respect towards coaches
-Still under contract with Redskins
Not that these guys lack the talent, but if either of them are even available, do you take the chance? I don't even know if Jim Washburn wants big Al. He seems pretty excited about Patterson, Bunkley, Laws, and Dixon. He believes these guys will thrive in his new one-gap system. There's more need at defensive end anyhow. Maybe they take a look at a guy like Babin, who played mediocre for the Birds, but went on to have a pro-bowl season under Washburn in Tennessee.
I can see an attempt at Plaxico. Everyone knows how much of a threat he was in the red zone. The question is can he still play like that. Philly has a great young group of receivers, and even though they are always looking to improve, I can't see anyone out there coming in and immediately taking over at #1 or #2.
