Raiders Trade DE Derrick Burgess to Patriots

 

NFL.com is reporting that the Raiders have traded DE Derrick Burgess to the New England Patriots for as of yet undisclosed draft consideration.

The two teams had been discussing a deal for the disgruntled Burgess for most of the offseason. Previous reports of the trade talks indicated that the Raiders were asking for 3rd and 4th round draft picks from the Patriots.

Burgess' departure brings a sigh of relief for other defensive ends on the Raiders roster such as Jay Richardson and rookie Matt Shaughnessy, who will both likely make the 53-man roster now that Burgess is gone.
