In 2020, he was with the Bears but tore his ACL at practice during training camp and missed the entire season spending it on injured reserve.

He appeared in 10 games and had eight tackles in 2019.

Burns spent his first found seasons with the Steelers appearing in 58 games with 32 starts recording 149 tackles, four interceptions, and 27 pass breakups.

The Steelers selected him in the first round (25th overall) of the 2016 NFL draft out of Miami.
