Cowboys Sign CB Deante Burton From Colts Practice Squad


The Cowboys announced on Wednesday they have signed CB Deante Burton from the Colts practice squad to their active roster. 

Burton takes the spot previously held by CB Anthony Brown, who landed on injured reserve earlier this week. 

Burton, 25, wound up signing on with the Falcons as an undrafted free agent out of Kansas State back in 2017. He was waived coming out of the preseason and was later signed to their practice squad.

The Falcons brought Burton back on a futures contract last year only to waive him again at the start of the regular season. He had a brief stint with the Packers before re-signing to the Falcons’ practice squad.

The Texans signed Burton to their active roster year only to release him coming out of the preseason. He caught on with the Colts practice squad later in the season.

In 2018, Burton appeared three games and recorded five tackles and a forced fumble.
