The Steelers took Burns with the 25th overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft when he was coming out of Miami. He played four seasons in Pittsburgh, appearing in 58 games and starting 32 while amassing 159 tackles, 27 passes defended and four interceptions over that same span.

He made a two-year stop in Chicago, signing with the Bears after the Steelers let him walk. He signed a pair of one-year deals for little money before jumping on with the Seahawks on a one-year, $2,035,000 contract. Burns appeared in 14 games for Seattle and started once, playing only 23% of the team’s defensive snaps and 46% of their special teams snaps.
