Former Saints FB Michael Burton signs with Kansas City Chiefs


Michael Burton spent the 2020 season as the New Orleans Saints' starting fullback. Now, after the Saints signed Alex Armah from the Carolina Panthers, Burton is headed to the Super Bowl runner-up Kansas City Chiefs. Burton brought to the Saints a versatile piece that excelled as a lead blocker, in short yardage situations and in special teams. The Chiefs, one of the other and few teams to use fullbacks in today's NFL, get a proven and multi-dimensional asset to help replace former player Anthony Sherman.
