FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The New England Patriots acquired DE Derrick Burgess in a trade with Oakland for undisclosed draft considerations today. Additionally, the Patriots released OL Al Johnson today.

Burgess, 6-2, 260 pounds, is a veteran of eight NFL seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles (2001-2004) and the Oakland Raiders (2005-2008). Burgess originally joined the NFL as a third-round draft pick by Philadelphia (63rd overall) out of Mississippi in 2001. He has accumulated 227 total tackles, 47 sacks during his career.

After a four-year career in Philadelphia, Burgess joined Oakland as an unrestricted free agent in 2005 and earned Pro Bowl honors in his first two seasons with the Raiders, registering 16 sacks in 2005 and 11 sacks in 2006. His 16 sacks in 2005 led the NFL and set an Oakland team record for most sacks in a season.

Johnson, 6-5, 305 pounds, was originally signed by the Patriots on March 16, 2009. He is a veteran of six NFL seasons with the Dallas Cowboys (2003-06), Arizona Cardinals (2007) and Miami Dolphins (2008). Johnson was originally selected by the Cowboys in the second round (38th overall) of the 2003 NFL Draft out of Wisconsin. Johnson was signed by the Cardinals as an unrestricted free agent on March 5, 2007. Last season, Johnson was placed on injured reserve by the Cardinals with a knee injury and was released from injured reserve on Oct. 21, 2008. He was signed by the Dolphins as a free agent on Nov. 29, 2008 and played in four games for Miami last season, seeing reserve action at both guard and center.

Good, one less player worth a damn in Oakland (is there anyone left in their front seven who has even sniffed NFL success?)

Greg Ellis is a pro bowl player. But hes on his last legs.

Thomas Howard and Kirk Morrison are two pretty good LBs.


Hey im just stating the facts...

Exactly how I reacted :) Although according to the newspaper today, Tommy Kelly was the 10th highest paid player in the league last year, so he must awesome....right?

Their success is what makes me glad we grabbed Martindale. I hope he can work some LB magic over here too!

not really. Sure it makes the Jokeland worse but it sure as hell won't help us against NE in the long run.

Well that confirms that Burgess will got to the pro-bowl this year. The Raiders bend over for the Patriots like no one.

The National Football Post is reporting (http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/Update-Burgess-trade-details.html) that the Raiders will receive third- and fifth-round picks in 2011 from New England in exchange for pass-rusher Derrick Burgess (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=2611). The Patriots announced the deal Thursday and said Oakland's compensation was undisclosed draft considerations.

Wow... so the Raiders are taking compensation deferred 2 years for the guy? A 3rd and a 5th two full seasons from now?

By the way, I love how far the Mane has come where now a football-based thread about division rivals is considered "OT"
