Browns sign former Steelers S Burnett, ex-AAF QB Gilbert

Dolphins missing out on low-risk AAF signings	
				Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

- The Cleveland Browns announced they have agreed to terms with former Orlando Apollos quarterback, Garret Gilbert. He played eight seasons with the Green Bay Packers before becoming a free agent and signing a thee-year, $14.5 million deal with the Steelers last year.

Dorsey was Green Bay's scouting director when the Packers drafted Burnett in the third round in 2010.

Now they'll rekindle their chemistry on the Browns, as Burnett will look to earn the starting strong safety job vacated by Jabrill Peppers when he was traded to the Giants as part of that blockbuster Odell Beckham Jr. trade. Last month, Burnett asked to be released by the Steelers after being used in a role he wasn't happy with this past season.

AAF shutting down, won't make it through first football season
The biggest story surrounding the XFL is whether or not they can get college players to bypass years in college to play for them. This didn't sit well with the league's founders, Polian and Charlie Ebersol , finally leading to the season cancellation.

Gilbert was the face of a rising power in Texas, Lake Travis High School, in 2009. Gilbert was selected in the sixth-round, number 214 overall, by the St. Louis Rams in 2014.

He would compete for the back up spot to Baker Mayfield with the Browns. He would round out his college career with SMU before trying to make his way into the NFL.

Failing to find a stable home, the 27-year-old elected to pursue a career in the AAF and he took the league by storm, throwing for 1,842 yards and 11 touchdowns while leading the Orlando Apollos to a league-best 7-1 record. He ended up bouncing around the league, never making an NFL appearance, until the final game of the 2018 season, when he threw three passes for the Carolina Panthers. He bounced around to several other teams, largely as a practice squad player, including the Patriots, Lions, Raiders and Panthers.
