Report: Burgess traded to New England

Defensive end Derrick Burgess, who has been holding out and demanding a trade since training camp opened last week, has apparently gotten his wish.

The Patriots announced that they have acquired Burgess for undisclosed draft picks on their Twitter page. The Raiders still have yet to issue a statement on the trade but there is speculation from Adam Schefter and others that they received more than the 3rd and 4th round picks that they had been reportedly seeking.

SBI's Mike Wagaman is at Raiders training camp and will be in with more details as they become available, so stay tuned.
