Patriots trade for another Burgess

By: Greg
Being thin at inside linebacker the Patriots have traded for one from the Baltimore Ravens. The Patriots got Prescott Burgess, an ILB but mostly played special teams for the Ravens. Prescott is a second year player from Michigan. In two years he has 8 tackles in 10 games, mostly all on special teams. The Pats are not giving up much in the deal, a seventh round pick.
Burgess will give the Patriots some depth at the inside. But look for him to just be mostly a special teams player who will give insurance.
"Whenever they come to me, I'll be ready for it," Burgess said.
"I don't think anything is complicated [coming from] the Baltimore Ravens, they run just about everything," "I'll just play football. I think I can catch on real fast."

BB thinks that Burgess can add versatility, which he loves in his linebackers.

"He played outside [at Michigan], inside at Baltimore and also played in the kicking game, so he has some versatility. He gives us a little more depth at that position," Belichick said.

Oh yea and by the way he will wear number 93.....
