Another day, another veteran wanting out of Pittsburgh.
This time it's safety Morgan Burnett, who told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport that he wishes to be released from his deal before free agency begins in mid-March.
The 30-year-old expressed to Rapoport a desire for a new start and a chance to play safety again. Burnett often played dime linebacker in Pittsburgh, or as he described it to Rapoport, "out of position."
Burnett has two years remaining on a three-year, $14.4 million deal signed with Pittsburgh in 2018. If the Steelers grant Burnett his release, they will take a cap hit of around $2.83 million in 2019.
When Steelers coach Mike Tomlin told reporters earlier this month, "change" was coming to the organization, did he expect this much?
