Bears Place CB Artie Burns On IR, Sign WR Rodney Adams


The Bears announced Thursday they have placed CB Artie Burns on injured reserve and signed WR Rodney Adams to the roster. 

Burns tore his ACL in practice this week and will have surgery as he tries to come back for 2021. He had just signed with Chicago as a free agent from the Steelers this year. 

Burns, 25, is a former first-round pick of the Steelers back in 2016. He finished the final year of his four-year, $9.59 million rookie contract and was testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent. 

Pittsburgh elected to decline Burns’ fifth-year option for 2020 last year and he later signed a one-year contract with the Bears this past March. 

In 2019, Burns appeared in 10 games and recorded eight total tackles and no other statistics.
