Summary

The Browns moved on from underachieving former first round pick Jabrill Peppers who was part of the big trade with the Giants. They brought Burnett in to fill the void at strong safety for a while. Burnett is a proven veteran with several years of starting experience. He signed a fairly cap friendly two year contract with Cleveland that will allow Burnett to prove himself year one and stay with the team in 2020 if he does so. On the field Burnett is a quality veteran presence who will provide leadership for a young defense. For IDP managers he is a sleeper target that many have written off after a couple down years. Burnett was a strong fantasy option over much of his eight seasons in Green Bay, including three top 12 finishes. With a strong front seven ahead of him, Burnett's opportunity may be somewhat limited but he could still be a good third starter. (May 15)
