The Birmingham Stallions impressively had 16 players sign with NFL teams this offseason. Of those 16, six made an NFL roster or a practice squad. One of those six was defensive back Lorenzo Burns. Unfortunately, Burns was cut by the Cleveland Browns in September. After waiting it out for a few months, Burns has decided to re-sign with the Stallions.
After winning two championships in the USFL, Burns signed with the Cleveland Browns this past summer. He had a solid preseason, playing in four games and registering 11 tackles. His play was good enough to secure a spot on the Browns’ practice squad. However, Burns was released in mid-September to make room for more offensive linemen.
