After working out as a tight end with the Buffalo Bills and New York Giants last week, the rugger worked out for the Pittsburgh Steelers and Seattle Seahawks this week.
“Burgess has been given the opportunity to develop his skills by participating in NFL training,” read a statement from his team released last week. “The Rabbitohs value Thomas’ desire to be the best professional athlete he can be and support his endeavour.”
Burgess has also worked out for the New York Jets recently.
Rabbitohs head coach Michael Maguire said he fully supported his rugger’s decision.
“We’re fully supportive of our players trying to improve themselves,” Maguire said, via foxsports.com.au. “This will provide a unique and valuable experience for Thomas, one that he will no doubt learn a lot from and in turn be able to bring back to the Rabbitohs for the coming season.”
