    FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- The New England Patriots obtained defensive end Derrick Burgess on Thursday after the two-time Pro Bowl player held out of the Oakland Raiders training camp in hopes of being traded.

    The Patriots gave up undisclosed draft considerations for Burgess, who is coming off an injury-plagued season in which he had 3½ sacks in 10 games. New England released offensive lineman Al Johnson.

    The trade was announced on the ninth day of Burgess' holdout from the team he recorded 38½ sacks with in four seasons, including a club-record and league-best 16 in 2005. He had 11 the next year and made the Pro Bowl both times.
    I'm sure they cheated somehow to get this done.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Al Davis has the Pats on Speed Dial?

    Trade all the players he can't contain in the hopes that they will taint the Pats.

    The old guy is delusional.

    Nothing drives me more nuts than someone who is NOT an All-Pro being called an All Pro.
    Sports Illustrated should know better than that!
