The Pats had big trouble getting to the quaterback last year and did not do much to Strengthen that pass rush expect for drafting Cunnimgham, (DE out of FLA). Now Derrick Burgess who came on strong as the season ended, has not show up for camp.
The Pats are now looking at former Bears DE Adewale Ogunleye (say that five times fast). He is a big man who had 6.5 sacks for DA Bears last season in 14 games. For his career he has 67 quarterback crunches.
While Adewale Ogunleye is getting up there in age, 32 years old, he still could be a good fit for the Pats who are really lacking at pass rusher. The Pats want to get younger but they might be too young at the outside rush position especially if Burgess retires.
The word today that nothing is imminent in terms of signing but why not give him a shot in the preseason to see if he still has the wheels to give quarterback’s headaches.
