The Browns signed Burris to a contract Wednesday, Andrew Gribble of the team's official site reports.
After being cut by the Jets in late October, Burris stuck around with the organization as a member of its practice squad before the Browns swooped in to grab him. The third-year player could be called upon to contribute on special teams and offer depth in the secondary after starting cornerback E.J. Gaines (concussion) was placed on injured reserve in a corresponding move.
The Jets released Burris on Saturday, Darryl Slater of NJ.com reports.
Burris, a fourth round pick in 2016, was let go so the team could add depth at running back. He was a depth corner who's primary contribution was on special teams.
Burris has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs due to a concussion, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.
Burris fills in at cornerback when there are injuries, but with the rest of the secondary is healthy, Burris wouldn't have played much on defense anyway. Expect Robert Nelson and Derrick Jones to fill in on special teams.
