Pats add more defensive line depth...bring back Burgess
The Patriots have re-signed defensive end Derick Burgess. The Patriots and Burgess reached agreement on a one-year contract, a league source said Friday morning. This move continues to give the Patriots defensive line depth. The Patriots re-signed Vince Wilfork and Tully Banta-Cain while going out and getting defensive tackles Gerald Warren and Damione Lewis. The Patriots originally acquired Burgess in a trade with Oakland last summer. The Pats look to improve the pass rush and hope Burgess can help out in this area if he returns to his 2005/2006 form instead the stiff he was last year.
