Burgess heading to the Raiders

Derrick Burgess is the latest Eagle to jump ship for a big pay day.  You can’t really argue with his move; the Raiders gave him a boat load of cash: 5 years, 17.5 million, 6 million signing bonus.  You have to wonder what the Raiders were thinking on this one.  Burgess is a great player when he plays, but the problem is, he hasn’t done a lot of playing in the last few years due to injury.  The Eagles appear to have done the right thing here, but they need to come up big in the draft and bolster the DLine.
