    Former Steelers’ cornerback Artie Burns is signing with the Bears on a one-year deal, per

    .

    Good that he was signed, give him a chance to stick and possibly start.

    Good luck Artie...

    Godspeed, Artie. Talk about a hardship case, raising his siblings when his dad was jailed. Thought he would be able to turn into a decent corner with us, seemed to have the physical tools. Too many obstacles to overcome, plus the pressure of being a 1st round pick, sadly it never worked out. He and Jarvis were the two reach picks in the first round I wish we had back. Too early to tell with Edmunds, hope he's on a different path a la Dupree.

    Wish Artie and his family nothing but the best. Maybe he can work his way back and regain some confidence with the Bears.

    I've always wondered if he was just a casualty of bad coaching. I hope he finds his way.

    Nick Vannett gone too. That was a quick turnaround for a guy we sent over a 5th round pick. But with Ebron on board, Steelers were probably smart to not throw too much money at him.

    Hopefully a career turnaround.
    Didn’t pan out in the B&G.

    He has a good head on his shoulders though.

    Guys have potential to make millions and it's the fucking coaches fault....These guys can BUY THAT FUCKING COACHING...They can hire position coaches, personal trainers, nutritionists, but it's the coaches fault...BS

    Good luck to Artie Burns.!




    But with the compensation formula, you'd have to be the CHEATRIOTS and get 4 comp pick for our guys but US STEELERS will be lucky to add up to ANOTHER THRIRD.

    That has always been my question about him. He has all the physical attributes you want. If it were just Burns-it would be a hard argument. But add in Cotex Allen and a few other past players that have come and gone-one has to wonder if they've been coached properly at the pro level. I would've like to have seen what Austin and Bradley could've done with him another year. Oh well. Time for Artie to get on with his life's work

    I didn't like the signing from the start. I believe I was into my second scotch of the evening and called him a "Crunk toothed piece of shit" lol. Sorry about that Artie. Hope it all works out for you in the end.

    Poor analogy. Stating the same for Nelson, Hilton, Sutton, and Haden? How about the LBs? DL? OL? WRs? RBs? Ben.

    Either a coaching can coach or it can't. This staff has shown they can coach up players. Some players lack the mental makeup to become great or even good.

    I don't agree with you on this one. I'm a wrestling coach and there are some kids I just can't get through too. It doesn't mean that I'm a bad coach or that the kid isn't a good student of the sport, it just means that we don't relate to one another. Look at Noll and Bradshaw for instance...there was a time early in Bradshaw's career where he SUCKED and Noll benched him. Luckily, Terry pulled it together and the rest is history.

    Maybe a change of scenery will do him some good.

    Gone about as far away as possible and not by his own choice, I wish nothing but the best for Artie Burns. As to why it did not work out for him here:
    1. I think he is more of a press man guy. That is a technique in itself. And the Steelers do not play a lot of that. For sure at some point got asked to play more off coverage. He looked a little guessy which is death to a DB.
    2. He got a rap, on the PI (fair and unfair) and that really fucked him up. That was probably born in technique of adapting to what they asked him to do.
