    Seattle thinks they found a gem in Burns...yes, THAT Burns.

    One of Colbert's biggest gaffes in his history in Pgh. Artie Burns. Let not forget he drafted Burns when Xavien Howard was still on the board. Nice one. Xavien has gone on to be one of the very best CBs in the entire NFL since.

    Better in Seattle. They only gave him 1 mill guaranteed 2 if all goes well. Good for him that he's still competing.

    It's interesting that Burns had a grade of 79.5 last season, his highest of his career. Artie never came close to this throughout his tenure in the Steel City. Maybe, he finally developed.

    See all you impatient fools who thought he was a bum.
    If you were only patient enough to wait 7 years for him to be on the verge of average.




    In view of the fact that Mike Tomlin has matched Cowhers record I give him the designation:

    Considering SEA was bottom of the league in pass defense last year a statue in the secondary might look good to them. Artie fooled us in his sophomore year. It was all downhill after that.

    His first two years as a Steeler he was 67.6 and 70.5, not bad for a young corner. Went downhill after, but I wouldn't call him a complete bust. Hope he finds success on NFC Pittsburgh.

    BTW, I'm sure this will quickly turn into a critique of PFF, but Joe Haden's grades by year in Pittsburgh were Burns-esque: 66.0, 70.9, 70.3, 66.6, 63.4.

    SEA is just throwing barbs at PIT because we think we found a gem in Witherspoon (although they do get a 2023 draft pick from us and we got nothing for Burns ).

    While his tape is average and technique can be non*existent at times, NFL teams often draft on traits at the cornerback spot and assume that coaching will take care of the rest.



    from his draft profile.

    Odd the coaches here couldn’t make him him into a good player. Lolol

    I agree.
    If his POSITION COACH was only as good as the one TAMPA had when they won that first SB Burns might have amounted to something.

    Burns has the physical tools to play in the NFL. I think the mental aspect of his game is where he probably failed with the Steelers.

    He made to many instinctive and mental mistakes for the Steelers to keep him.
