    Always good to pimp one of our own, learned by now not to get hopes up on what we think we need... but there are draft picks named.. so may mean something.

    It Is What It Is Patriots looking to deal for Oakland’s Burgess

    :D The only update I have on Burgess is that NE has been talking to Jokeland since draft day about possibly acquiring him for the right price.

    Not trying to be a dick, but that was a misleading title.

    Re: Update on Burgess.. From Chris Price...

    I really hope this trade happens, hopefully a 3rd but I wouldn't mind throwing in a 6th rounder aswell to sweeten the deal. It is important we get pressure on opposing QBs to help out our secondary, especially since we don't have much experience at CB. If Adalius can stay healthy I believe he will get double-digit sacks but I'm not very confident about the other OLB spot. Hopefully, Crable will develop into a good pass rusher but I don't see him being ready to step in this year since he missed all of last year's action.

    Re: Update on Burgess.. From Chris Price...

    The conversation is also revealing for what it didn't say.

    Buress has difficulty containing the run. That was the reason he was shipped out by the Eagles. He was/is a pass rusher, no doubt, but would probably be restricted to plalying the WOLB, as a full timer. More probably he is a situation 3rd down pass rusher, only, like TBC. Outside of Thomas and somewhat for TBC, that is the criticism of the present young crew of LBs.
    Some of th concern is that the probable pass rsuhers haven't showm much yet. Maybe they will. Woods and Crabel are just unknowns as pass rushers.

    Off their backgrounds, I suspect both wil prove surprising good in that regard, as they mature.

    Sorry to spoil the fun but it seems as though Tom Cable wanted to provide an ACTUAL update with the Raiders coach saying he expects Burgess to play for the Raiders this season.
