FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The New England Patriots acquired third-year LB Prescott Burgess today in a trade with Baltimore for an undisclosed draft choice. To make room for Burgess on the 53-man roster, the Patriots released C Ryan Wendell.
I see what the OP is sayin... but the pick is "conditional" so it may not be a 7th once its all said and one. I think we won that trade anyway... dude was a 3rd rounder (I think) and he's definitely worth more than a 7th. Loomis get the better end of that trade (for now anyway).
David Thomas has been solid and needed depth, especially given a limited knowledge of the offense, but I haven't been floored. I can't say the same of our other pick-up from the Pats, Heath Evans, who has made two of the niftiest plays you'll ever see a fullback make in successive weeks in addition to doing a solid job as a blocker.
