Panthers' Juston Burris: Enjoys starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burris finished the 2020 season with 53 tackles (34 solo) and an interception on four passes defended in 13 games played.

Burris started a career-high 12 games in his first season with the Panthers, finishing sixth on the team in tackles while posting a personal best in the category as well. That output should keep him in Carolina next season, when the defense hopes to continue its development under coordinator Phil Snow.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burris finished with seven tackles (six solo) in Sunday's 32-27 loss to the Broncos.

Burris placed second on the Panthers in stops, bringing his season tally to 44 through 10 appearances. That total already marks a career high for Burris, who still has three games left to add to his account.

Panthers' Juston Burris: Officially activated
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Panthers' Juston Burris: Prepping to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers designated Burris (ribs) to return from injured reserve Tuesday, marking the beginning of his 21-day window to be activated, Myles Simmons of the team's official site reports.

Burris has missed three weeks and is eligible to return to action this Sunday against the Buccaneers. Whether that happens will depend on how he responds to the week of practice, but the fifth-year safety should reclaim the starting strong safety role upon return. Burris produced 24 tackles, two pass breakups and an interception through six games.

Panthers' Juston Burris: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers placed Burris (ribs) on injured reserve Tuesday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

The team doesn't believe this is a season-ending injury, but it sounds like he could be out longer than the three-game minimum that an IR stint requires. Sam Franklin replaced Burris at safety when he exited this past Sunday's loss to the Bears, and he'll likely retain the role moving forward. The Panthers also signed Sean Chandler to add depth.

Panthers' Juston Burris: Hampered by ribs issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burris (ribs) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Bears, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

The Raleigh, North Carolina, native had been extraordinary in coverage coming into Sunday's matchup against the Bears, holding opponents to a 55.4 passer rating (on 15 attempts) when targeting him in coverage. Sam Franklin will step in for Burris at strong safety so long as the starter is unable to return to action.

Panthers' Juston Burris: Makes six stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burris finished with six tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 31-21 win over the Cardinals.

Burris made one tackle for loss and also defended a pass in Sunday's victory. The veteran has notched 14 stops in Carolina's past two games and will look to keep his momentum going in Week 5 versus the Falcons.

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.

Juston Burris: Let go by Oakland
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.

Raiders' Juston Burris: Signs deal with Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burris signed with the Raiders on Friday.

Burris most recently played for the Browns in a strictly special teams role. He'll be deployed in a similar fashion in Oakland, and he brings necessary depth to the Raiders' secondary after Johnathan Abram (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve.

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.

After the Browns signed Burris off the Jets' practice squad in late October last season, he made four appearances on special teams. Burris projects to reprise a similar role if he's able to carve out a spot on the 53-man roster.

Juston Burris: Enters free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Burris joined the Browns in November after being let go by the Jets. The 25-year-old didn't play a defensive snap over eight games between the two teams.

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

The Jets cut Burris on Saturday, Darryl Slater of 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 whose primary contribution was on special teams.

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.
