Report: Burgess considering retirement


In terms of attendance at this morning’s practice session, all of the players were accounted for save one: Derrick Burgess.

The 31-year old, acquired last season from Oakland in exchange for third- and fifth-round draft picks, reportedly is leaning towards retirement, according to’s Len Pasquarelli.

Citing sources, Pasquarelli writes that as recently as Wednesday Burgess was leaning towards calling it a career after nine seasons. New England has been apprised of the situation.
