I think any deal with make using Burns would be for a long term solution at another position. I think it would be short sighted to say no based on next season since we're clearly not going to be a contender next season anyway.
It would still depend on what the return is, but I wouldn't say no simply because it creates a different hole. Defense is an area of organizational depth, and to fix roster issues long term, you have to trade from areas of organizational strength to fill in areas of weakness.
