Browns sign former Steelers’ Safety Morgan Burnett & ex-AAF QB Garrett Gilbert

NFL Defensive Back Morgan Burnett

The Cleveland Browns have signed former Packers and Steelers safety Morgan Burnett and quarterback Garrett Gilbert, who played in the failed Alliance of American Football.
  
Burnett was released by Pittsburgh this week. Gilbert played for the Orlando Apollos of the defunct AAF. He was the league’s passing leader with 2,152 yards.
  
The Browns have been looking for a safety since trading Jabrill Peppers to the Giants in the deal for star Odell Beckham. This week the Browns acquired safety Eric Murray in a trade with Kansas City.
  
Burnett’s role was reduced last season with the Steelers after the team drafted Terrell Edmunds in the first round. The 30-year-old Burnett was also slowed by a groin injury and played in 11 games.
