Derrick Burgess is on the trade block

According to rotoworld.com


"The Raiders are "actively shopping" DE Derrick Burgess, according to the National Football Post. NFP contributor Mike Lombardi is a former Raiders front office member, so he's probably where this is coming from. Burgess reported to the Raiders' practice facility earlier than ever this offseason, but perhaps that's just an effort to expedite a trade. Burgess is entering a contract season."

Burgess has just come off a subpar season in which he only played 10 games and chipped in only 3.5 sacks but before last season he registered 8, 11, and 16 sacks in three consecutive seasons. He is 30 years old and that coupled with his recent outing probably means he could be had for not much. Maybe McGee for Burgess straight up or packaged with a 5th or 6th rounder? Maybe even a 4th for Burgess? If we draft a DE in round 1 an cut Kelsay I think our DE rotation could look better with Burgess, Ellis, Schobel, Denney and Orakpo/Brown than it does now. Any takers?

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
