Fuck Plaxico, just get Haynesworth and trade Kolb for two second round picks.
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.

haynesworth is more likely than plax. washburn has been openly campaigning for him, haynesworth has said himself that he wants to come here and play for washburn again. Bunkley is in a contract year and not likely to stick around. Laws has one season of half-decent play, not cutting it for a dude drafted higher than Desean. Haynesworth also wants to stay in the NFCE to stick it to the Redskins now.
plax does not face any further discipline from the league, and is no longer under contract to the giants. I just don't think he will be the player he was.
Who even has two seconds to give up for Kolb? It's already bad enough that we have to take picks from next year's draft, I don't want an additional pick being for the year after that. first rounder or keep him as a backup and let him walk at the end of the year or sign Vick long-term, franchise Kolb at the end of the year, and then trade him.
Babin seems like a no-brainer
