New York Giants Make Waves with Mega-Deal for Brian Burns!

1 Mins read

The NFL free agency frenzy is off to an explosive start, with the New York Giants making a seismic move! Reports indicate they’ve struck a deal with the Carolina Panthers, landing the ferociously talented Brian Burns. The cost? A second-round pick (No. 39 overall) and fifth-round pick (No. 141) in the upcoming draft.

But the Giants aren’t stopping there. They’re locking down Burns with a staggering five-year deal, worth a potential $150 million with a whopping $87.5 million in guarantees. This skyrockets Burns into the NFL’s defensive elite—an average annual value of $30 million places him alongside titans like Nick Bosa, Chris Jones, and Aaron Donald.

Burns, who turns 26 in April, has been a force of nature since his rookie debut with the Panthers in 2019. The fearsome pass rusher is a two-time Pro Bowler with a devastating career total of 46 sacks, eight forced fumbles, 59 tackles for loss, 246 total tackles, and 95 quarterback hits. His relentless energy and relentless pursuit were particularly evident in 2022 when he notched career highs in sacks, tackles for loss, total tackles, and QB hits.

Burns isn’t just a powerhouse; he’s a reliable one, rarely missing games due to injury. Last season, though not his most statistically impressive, he still recorded eight sacks, 16 tackles for loss, 50 total tackles, and 18 quarterback hits. Now, he’ll join forces with the Giants’ already impressive defensive front, creating a nightmare for opposing offenses alongside Dexter Lawrence and Kayvon Thibodeaux.

This bombshell move follows swift action from the Giants, who earlier secured offensive firepower with guard Jon Runyan and running back Devin Singletary. The trade-off? Losing Saquon Barkley and Xavier McKinney.
