    For an undisclosed draft pick. Meanwhile, they cut Al Johnson.

    Nice (depending on the price). I don't care if he can play LB full time, as long as he helps our pass rush on 2nd/3rd long, we need him.

    Very OT, but if a mod could fix the spelling error in the title it would be greatly appreciated. I'm unsure how to do it myself.

    re: Pats acquire DE/OLB Derrick Burgess for draft pick

    Dear Mr. Burgess,

    Congratulations on shooting your way out of town! We're glad to have you. The only problem is that there's almost no holes left on the roster to fret about.

    Time to fire up the Super Bowl DVD against Philadelphia to see Burgess' game.

    Go Pats!

    re: Pats acquire DE/OLB Derrick Burgess for draft pick

    How dope is this? Burgess definitely has the pass rushing ability as his back to back double digit sack campaigns would point out. Assuming the Pats didn't give up too much, this is a great move for the Pats.

    re: Pats acquire DE/OLB Derrick Burgess for draft pick

    Noticed the trade was for draft considerations (pleural), so I am hoping its a 4th and a 6th, will be happy with a 4th and 5th, but upset if its a 3rd and something else.

    On Al Johnson, hope that signals the coming return of Ohrnberger.

    Backup QB............... epic disaster!




    We're talking "dozens of threads before the start of the season" type of panic potential.
