Cornerback out of Miami agrees to four-year deal

PITTSBURGH – The Steelers have signed their first-round selection, cornerback Artie Burns, from the 2016 NFL Draft. Financial terms of the four-year deal were not disclosed.

Burns (6-0, 197), who was the 25th overall pick, played collegiately at the University of Miami. He started 23-of-36 games played and finished his Hurricane career with 93 tackles, 14 pass breakups, seven interceptions, one forced fumble and a fumble recovery. Burns led the Atlantic Coast Conference with six interceptions in 2015, the most by a Hurricane since 2003 (Sean Taylor, 10), en route to earning All-ACC second-team honors.

Burns is the sixth of the Steelers’ seven selections from the 2016 NFL Draft to sign with the team.
