    Re: Burgess considering retirement?

    Well, this sucks. He was looking decent at the end of last year.

    Did the Pats know about this yesterday...as bad as Crable is, you'd think they'd at least keep him on the roster, since they are now painfully thin at OLB.

    Wow.
    Losing depth at this point sets that Pats way back.
    Open camp and lose two OLB's from the very weak corps, before any team stretching, creates an enormous challenge.

    Belichick: Hello Shawn? Bill here. How's it goin? Hey, I'm calling about that unfortunate clerical error mixup yesterday. You know, the cut thingy....Yeah...Well what happened is, you won't believe this but I told some caterer employee at lunch that the crabmeat looked spoiled and to "Get the crab outa here right away". Well one of my staff heard this and mistakenly issued you your walking papers. My bad. We're sending him to Cleveland tomorrow. Anyhow, if you're not too busy fishin and stuff tomorrow stop by and we'll give you your old locker back, OK? Shawn, Shawn...are you there?

    This is not good news, he really improved towards the end of last season. Ugh the thoughts of Ninkovich as a starter makes me cringe!

    Who's got extra linebackers we could get in an annual training camp trade?

    For the record, Dale and Holley have been talking about this on WEEI and have not questioned its truthfulness during the time I've been listening. They also did a (weak) comedy bit about bringing back AdT....

    Maybe he just didn't want the humiliation of failing the conditioning test :confused:

    guess this means an FA signing in August

    It could just be this...he'll contemplate retirement until TC ends.

    Maybe Burgess will reconsider after the 2 a days are over.

    The source is ESPN....and an unnamed 'source'


    I'll believe it when the Hoodie reports it, until then...I assume he is getting treatment.
