Browns' Juston Burris: Finds new home
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers and Burris agreed on a two-year contract worth $8 million Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Burris enjoyed the best season of his career in 2019 from a statistical perspective. The 26-year-old racked up 32 tackles (26 solo), a sack, two interceptions and a forced fumble across 14 games last season. With Burris joining the fold and potentially taking over as the team's starting free safety, it could signal the end of Tre Boston's tenure with the Panthers.

Browns' Juston Burris: Heads to free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burris recorded 32 tackles, one sack, seven passes defensed, two interceptions and one forced fumble over 14 games in 2019.

Statistically speaking, 2019 was the best of Burris' four-year career. After spending four games in 2018 with the Browns and participating in their training camp, he was let go as part of the final roster cuts. He had a brief stay with the Raiders before Cleveland, desperate for secondary help, brought him back mid-September after Oakland released him. That institutional knowledge helped Burris, who had a career high in snaps. However, with a new regime taking over in 2020, his experience in the previous system does not give him any advantage. The 27-year-old Burris will become an unrestricted free agent in March.

Browns' Juston Burris: Ready for starter's role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burris will start in place of Morgan Burnett (Achilles) in the team's Week 12 contest against the Dolphins, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Burnett suffered the injury in the team's Week 11 contest against the Steelers, leaving his starting role vacant for Burris. Though he's served as a reserve for much of the season, Burris has shown the ability to make an impact by picking off two passes and also recording a sack in eight games.

Browns' Juston Burris: Steps up big in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burris recorded five tackles (four solo), one sack, one defended pass, one interception and one forced fumble in Thursday's 21-7 victory over Pittsburgh.

Burris was forced to slot into the starting lineup Thursday with Morgan Burnett ruled out due to an Achilles injury and Damarious Randall ejected for an illegal hit. The 2016 fourth-round pick proved explosive in his opportunity, notching a strip-sack prior to the end of the first half and a fourth quarter interception that cut any chances of a Steelers comeback short. Given the volatile situations surrounding Cleveland's usual starters due to suspension or injury, it's looking likely that Burris will play an expanded role again Week 12.

Browns' Juston Burris: Plays full game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burris played all 66 defensive snaps and three more on special teams in Cleveland's loss to the Rams in Week 3. He finished with four tackles, one interception and one pass defensed.

Burris' fourth-quarter pick, the third interception of his career, set up the Browns for a potential game-tying drive. He was a free agent during the week leading up to Week 3 before the Browns, in desperate need of secondary help, snapped him up Friday. With the team's entire starting secondary sidelined, the Browns needed Burris for heavy playing time. He spent the second half of the 2018 season with Cleveland and was with it during the preseason, so Burris was familiar with the Browns' schemes.

Browns' Juston Burris: Picked up off waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns claimed Burris off waivers from the Raiders on Friday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

The Browns had an open roster spot after placing David Njoku (wrist) on injured reserve, and they needed depth at safety since Damarious Randall (concussion) is ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Rams while Morgan Burnett (quadriceps) is questionable. Burris only has two days to prepare, however, so he'll likely stick to special teams for the time being.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Raiders cut Burris on Thursday, Jerry McDonald of the Oakland Tribune reports.

Burris spent less than a week on Oakland's roster before being cut to make room for Trevor Davis. The 2016 fourth-round pick will look to earn a chance elsewhere in the league.

Browns' Juston Burris: Re-ups with Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burris signed a contract with the Browns on Monday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Burris became an unrestricted free agent Wednesday after the Browns declined to tender him a contract for 2019, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.

Browns' Juston Burris: Lands with Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Juston Burris: Let go by Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jets' Juston Burris: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Jets' Juston Burris: DNP Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burris (knee) did not participate in Wednesday's practice.

Jets' Juston Burris: Fourth-round pick by Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets selected Burris in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 118th overall.

Burris a big corner who might not have the athleticism to run alongside the league's faster receivers, but college quarterbacks generally declined to throw his way at North Carolina State. The Jets will presumably count on Burris to provide some push in press coverage.
