Daily Cleveland Browns Roster Breakdown: Morgan Burnett

Morgan Burnett looks to bring a veteran presence to a very talented Browns defense.

This is the 19th installment of a series of articles covering each player on the Cleveland Browns roster. There will be a new player released every day from now until the Browns preseason begins. If you enjoy (tolerate) this article, I encourage you to check back each day to read each one. I try to keep these articles short and sweet.

#42- Morgan Burnett– S- Georgia Tech

I hope Freddie Kitchens chooses Burnett to be a team captain this season. I really have no reason for him to be, other than the fact that we can call him Captain Morgan and do the pose every time he makes a play. Plus, pairing him with Redwine in the defensive backfield could create some interesting nicknames. Also, I can’t really imagine opposing quarterbacks being overly aggressive against this Browns defense. On second thought, I can very much envision Ben Roethlisberger seeing Redwine and Captain Morgan on the field and deciding to take a bunch of shots.

Burnett played 11 games for the Steelers last season recording 30 tackles and six passes defended. Prior to that, he started 102 games over eight seasons with the Packers. That time with Green Bay was where John Dorsey got to know the veteran safety. The Browns general manager was the Director of College Scouting for the Cheeseheads when Burnett was drafted in 2010.

Morgan gives the Browns another veteran presence on the defensive end. That seemed to be a theme this offseason, as they brought in Sheldon Richardson and Olivier Vernon on the defensive line as well. These new vets should help bring along the young core players from last season. Those young guys fresh out of college are sure to love this Captain Morgan.

Just think if the browns would have taken Josh Allen

Who have they beat?

It’s bad play calling it’s bad execution. Nick it’s 3 years of baker still not settling in and playing his game

After this year if baker doesn’t prove himself. Would you rather see the browns let him go and find a new QB in the draft?

Nick, you’re the only browns fan that I love❤️ next game will be PSU vs OSU❤️
