Michael Burton: Lands in Big Easy

The Saints signed Burton to a one-year contract Friday, John DeShazier of the Saints' official site reports.

Analysis: Burton spent the 2019 offseason in New Orleans, but he failed to earn a spot on the team's 53-man roster. The veteran fullback will now get another shot at carving out a role with the Saints.

Michael Burton: Comes up empty

Burton was held without a catch on one target in Sunday's 34-17 loss to the Jets.

Analysis: The veteran fullback has seen just one target and no carries in four games since he signed with Washington in October. Burton merely serves as an occasional blocker for Adrian Peterson and Derrius Guice.

Michael Burton: Signs with Saints

Burton signed a contract with the Saints on Monday, John Katzenstein of The Times-Picayune reports.

Analysis: Burton will add an element of competition to training camp this summer as he will go head-to-head with incumbent fullback Zach Line. Burton only appeared in eight games last season with Bears and has recorded 64 rushing yards over his four-year career.

Michael Burton: Headed to free agency

Burton caught one pass for six yards during the 2018 season.

Analysis: Burton appeared in eight games, seeing most of his work as a blocker. He'll enter free agency, but it's unlikely he'll emerge as a strong fantasy contributor, as he's posted just 64 yards over his four seasons in the league.
