    The Raiders asked the Patriots for their second-round pick this year, Sebastian Vollmer, and back-up quarterback Kevin OConnell in exchange for defensive end Derrick Burgess. The Pats turned down that trade proposal, just as the Raiders have turned down a few of the Patriots. New England remains interested in Burgess, but the prevailing thought in the NFL is that the Raiders will not trade him theyre just making it seem that theyre making the effort.
