Former Seminole defensive end Brian Burns’ fifth-year option was picked up by the Carolina Panthers last offseason. The former first-round pick is under contract with the team that drafted him; at least through 2023. Now the Panthers have the difficult task of extending him, however, that isn’t making much progress.
Carolina Panthers “No Where Near” Extending Star Edge Rusher Brian Burns
Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reported that the Panthers and Brian Burnes are “not at all close” to a contract extension right now:
They’ve been talking for months. They are not at all close on a deal. He’s gonna play games yeah, but frustration could boil over a little bit here eventually. This is an elite player
Burns is entering the final year of his rookie contract with the Carolina Panthers and he is expected to make a huge impact in the coming season. It is understandable why a two-time Pro Bowler who is about to become a free agent wants to be paid like a top edge guy in the NFL.
It is just over a week before Carolina kicks off the regular season against the Atlanta Falcons, and Burns is still away from the team.
Frank Reich, the team’s first-year head coach, refused to rule out that Burns’ contract may have something to do with the situation.
In 2022, Brian Burns recorded 63 tackles (17 for loss), 22 QB hits, and 12.5 sacks.
