We told you about Derrick Burgess re-joining the Patriots a few weeks back.
The news was made official today, with New England cutting wide receiver Isaiah Stanback and linebacker Bruce Davis to make room.
We rooted for Stanback because everyone loves a good converted quarterback turned wideout. (Stanback essentially served as New England’s No. 3 quarterback on the practice squad last year.)
But if the Patriots can’t use a multi-dimensional player, there probably isn’t a team that can. Julian Edelman, for instance, is another former quarterback that quickly passed Stanback on the depth chart.
