Chiefs | Team to try out Burton
Wed, 2 Aug 2006 23:38:27 -0700

Charles Chandler, of the Charlotte Observer, reports former NFL DL Shane Burton (Panthers) will have a workout with the Kansas City Chiefs sometime this week. His career with the Panthers was cut short by knee problems, which he said are healed.

Does anyone know anything about this guy?

Looks like he was pretty durable up until 2004.

Tall dude.....

Worth taking a look at, I guess.

From looking at his stats his sack numbers aren't too impressive, 2-3 per season, but he has a lot of sucsess batting down balls.

IIRC we had an interest with him before he signed with carolina.

Considering how bad the DT position is, anything is worth a look.
