  • Seahawks' Artie Burns: Headed to Seattle

    Burns agreed to a one-year, $2 million contract with the Seahawks on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Burns appeared in 11 contests for the Bears in 2021, totaling 23 tackles (19 solo) and six pass deflections. The 2016 first-round pick was a productive IDP option during his first two seasons in the league with Pittsburgh, but it's unclear if he'll garner a big enough role in Seattle to return to that level of production.

  • Bears' Artie Burns: Moderate production in finale

    Burns notched three stops in the Bears' 31-17 Week 18 loss to the Vikings, and he ended the season with 23 tackles and four passes defensed in 11 games.

    After primarily playing on special teams through Week 11, Burns saw his snap share increase drastically the rest of the way, but his tackle totals were volatile from week to week. He'll be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and if he lands a role on a cornerback-needy team, he could return to being a solid IDP option like he was in his first two years in the league.

  • Bears' Artie Burns: Activated off reserve/COVID-19 list

    Burns (illness) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official team site reports.

    The cornerback was forced to miss Monday's loss to the Vikings after being placed on the COVID-19 list Dec. 14. Prior to being inactive in Week 15, he was coming off a strong Week 14 performance against the Packers where he registered a season-high nine tackles. Burns will look to pick up where he left off when the Bears see Russell Wilson and the Seahawks on Sunday.

  • Bears' Artie Burns: Placed on reserve/COVID-19 list

    Burns was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday.

    The cornerback will now enter the league's COVID-19 protocols and could potentially miss the Bears' Week 15 matchup versus the Vikings on Monday, though the extra day plays into his benefit. Burns is coming off of a strong performance against the Packers in Week 14 where he made nine tackles.

  • Bears' Artie Burns: Strong performance in defeat

    Burns recorded nine tackles in the Bears' 45-30 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

    Burns has played in three games since returning from a foot injury, and his tackle total has increased in each game. As a cornerback that opposing offenses may choose to attack with regularity, he could post solid tackle totals in the fantasy playoffs.

  • Bears' Artie Burns: Off Chicago's injury report

    Burns (foot) wasn't listed on the Bears' injury report Wednesday.

    Burns missed the Bears' Week 6 contest against the Packers dealing with a foot injury. The cornerback will look to get chances to play defensive snaps in Week 7 after only seeing special teams snaps in Weeks 1 through 4. Expect Burns to provide depth support to Jaylon Johnson against the Buccaneers on Sunday.

  • Bears' Artie Burns: Inactive Sunday

    Burns (foot) will not play Sunday against the Packers.

    Burns, a 2016 first-round selection, missed all of last season with an ACL tear. He had been active Week 1 through 4, but was only seeing special team snaps. Burns will have to wait until Week 7 to get a chance to suit up on a Sunday again.

  • Bears' Artie Burns: Brought back by Chicago

    The Bears re-signed Burns on Wednesday, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

    Chicago just released Burns on Tuesday, but the team is still in the process of finalizing a 53-man roster for Week 1. The 2016 first-round pick missed all of 2020 due to an ACL tear, and in 2019 he saw his role with the Steelers reduced.

  • Artie Burns: Parts ways with Bears

    Burns was released by the Bears on Tuesday.

  • Bears' Artie Burns: Present at practice

    Burns (knee) is practicing Monday, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports.

    Burns was forced to miss the entire 2020 campaign due to a torn ACL, but he's managed to retake the practice field with just under a month before the Bears kick off Week 1 of the 2021 season. The 2016 first-round pick will look to revitalize his career in Chicago. Last we saw Burns in action was 2019, when he logged just eight total tackles across 10 games with the Steelers.
