Pats add another pass rusher

Posted by Chris Brown on August 6, 2009 – 10:40 pm

As if Adalius Thomas screaming off the edge isn’t enough, New England added to their pass rush acquiring Derrick Burgess in a trade with Oakland.

The Patriots announced the deal themselves. Multiple reports say the Pats gave up a 3rd and 5th in 2011. Some reports say it was a 3rd and 4th. Burgess had 16 and 11 sacks in 2005 and 2006, but dropped off the last two seasons with the Raiders where he has not been a happy camper.

If that guy is not motivated to play for the Pats he’s nuts. Week 1 is looking like a bigger and bigger test for Buffalo’s offensive line. Who the heck do you double? Seymour? Wilfork? Warren? Thomas? Burgess? Yikes.
