Derrick Burgess Biography
Derrick Burgess was born August 12, 1978 in Lake City, South Carolina and is a defensive end and linebacker for the New England Patriots of the National Football League. He was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the third round of the 2001 NFL Draft. He played college football at Mississippi.
Burgess has also played for the Oakland Raiders. During his years in Oakland, he was selected to the Pro Bowl twice, and in 2005 led the NFL in sacks with 16.
On August 6, 2009, the Patriots traded their original third- and fourth-round selections in the 2010 NFL Draft to the Raiders in exchange for Burgess. The trade was made on the condition that, because the Patriots had already traded their fifth-round selection, the fourth-round selection sent to Oakland would become a fifth-round selection once the Patriots re-acquired one. Later that month, the Patriots traded defensive lineman Le Kevin Smith to the Denver Broncos along with their original seventh-round pick to the Denver Broncos in exchange for the Broncos' fifth-round pick, which was sent to Oakland for the Patriots' original fourth-round pick.
Burgess played in all 16 games for the Patriots, starting six. He finished the season with 35 tackles and five sacks.
