Saints Signing FB Michael Burton


According to Josh Katzenstein, the Saints are signing FB Michael Burton following his tryout at rookie minicamp this weekend. 

Burton, 27, is a former fifth-round pick of the Lions back in 2015. He signed a four-year, $2.46 million contract and made base salaries of $615,000 and $705,000 over the remainder of the contract.

The Lions waived Burton in 2017, after which he was claimed by the Bears and finished out the remainder of his rookie deal.

In 2018, Burton appeared in eight games for the Bears and caught one pass for six yards.
