Birmingham Stallions Re-Sign CB Lorenzo Burns For 2024

Birmingham Stallions Re-Sign CB Lorenzo Burns For 2024

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.

Cleveland Browns

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 Brownsโ€™ practice squad. However, Burns was released in mid-September to make room for more offensive linemen.

Back to Birmingham

Burns has decided to return to Birmingham in 2024. A key contributor to the Stallionsโ€™ secondary over the past two seasons, Burns will be a welcome addition. Over two seasons, Burns has registered 45 tackles, two tackles for loss, two interceptions, nine pass deflections, two forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery.

Three-peat?

The Stallions roster is slowly taking shape. From being down to around 40 players at one point, the Birmingham Stallions are now just a couple of players away from filling out their roster for 2024. They have a solid depth chart and will look to three-peat next season.
