The Oakland Raiders announced that they have signed former Miami Dolphins linebacker Kevin Burnett.
Kevin Burnett spent the past 2 seasons away from the AFC West when he was once a member of the San Diego Chargers from 2009-2010. But the past 2 seasons Burnett was a member of the Miami Dolphins serving as the teams starting left outside linebacker. This off season, Burnett’s days of sticking with the team for a 3rd season was coming to an after the team signed former Oakland Raider Philip Wheeler and former Baltimore Raven Dannell Ellerbe to contracts.
This off-season the Raiders lost linebacker Philip Wheeler to the Miami Dolphins and it seems likely that Kevin Burnett will take the role of Wheeler on the teams defense and be sworn into as the teams starting left-outside linebacker.
