Burris, 27, is a former fourth-round pick of the Jets back in 2016 out of NC State. He was in the third year of his four-year, $2.89 million contract when the Jets waived in 2018.
The Jets re-signed Burris to their practice squad after he cleared waivers but eventually joined the Browns not long after. Cleveland elected to re-sign him to a one-year, $645,000 deal last year.
From there, Burris signed a two-year, $8 million contract with the Panthers this past March.
In 2020, Burris has appeared in six games for the Panthers and recorded 24 tackles, one interception and two passes defended.
