Burnett, 22, originally signed on with the Titans as an undrafted free agent out of USC back in 2018. He was among Tennessee’s final roster cuts coming out of the preseason and signed with the Jets’ practice squad a couple of days later.
Burnett was on and off of the Jets’ roster in 2018 before signing with the 49ers’ practice squad in October of last year but was waived after a couple of months.
The Eagles signed him in December to their practice squad and promoted him toward the end of the 2019 season, but he was among their final roster cuts coming out of training camp.
In 2019, Burnett appeared in one game and recorded two receptions for 48 yards receiving (24 YPC) and no touchdowns.
