Browns to sign AAF QB Gilbert, FA safety Burnett

Morgan Burnett's contract indicates a high level of commitment by the Browns

Morgan Burnett's contract indicates a high level of commitment by the Browns

But he was released during final cuts, signed to the practice squad and released before the season ended.

Burnett, 30, played in only 11 games for the Steelers last season, tallying 30 tackles and six pass breakups. Safety became a need for Cleveland when Jabrill Peppers was traded to the New York Giants in the deal that brought them Odell Beckham Jr. The Steelers converted Burnett to dime cornerback during his one season in Pittsburgh, but the former Green Bay Packers veteran is hoping to return to safety. However, he got hurt during training camp and eventually lost his starting job to rookie Terrell Edmunds, a first-round draft pick.

In response, Google has said that it is "going back the drawing board" and is ending the council. Then Google said it would publish reports based on those meetings.

It appears it didn't take long for former Pittsburgh Steelers safety Morgan Burnett to find work. Before that, Burnett was with the Packers.

He's also played in the post-season, and that's where the Browns believe they can go following a 7-8-1 season and numerous roster upgrades. But now that the team has Baker Mayfield as the franchise QB, such a move only raises an eyebrow and provides competition for the backup spot. He signed with the practice squads in New England and Oakland, before making his National Football League debut with Carolina in 2018. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports the Browns will ink Gilbert, the leading passer in the recently disbanded AAF with the Orlando Apollos. He made his pro debut in the Panthers' season finale past year and completed two passes for 40 yards.
