Former Ravens LB Prescott Burgess is among the veteran free agents trying out for the Texans this week.
Also getting a look are FB Moran Norris and WR Mike Sims-Walker. The Texans tryout is Sims-Walker's second in two weeks. Considering the Texans' lack of veteran depth behind Andre Johnson, it won't bode well for MSW's future if he again goes unsigned. Tue, Jun 12, 2012 12:31:00 PM

Burgess has been waived by the Ravens twice in the past month. A pure special teamer since being a sixth-round pick in 2007, he's notched 35 tackles in 38 career games. If signed, he'd be taking Ricky Brown's (concussion, injured reserve) place on special teams.

Wed, Jul 27, 2011 12:52:00 PM

The Ravens will likely make an attempt to re-sign free agent LB Prescott Burgess.

"He's a proven special teams guy, he's a proven backup linebacker and I think on another team he could possibly be a starting linebacker," coach John Harbaugh said. "He's got a role on our team if we can make it work." The Ravens' top special teams tackler the past two seasons, Burgess was not extended a restricted free agent tender by Baltimore.
Sat, Apr 2, 2011 09:55:00 AM

Wed, Mar 3, 2010 03:16:00 PM

Ravens signed LB Prescott Burgess off the Patriots' practice squad.
