PRO: The Dallas Cowboys signed Deante Burton off the Indianapolis Colts practice squad on Nov. 20 after losing Anthony Brown for the season to a triceps injury. Burton saw time in three games with Dallas and will look to make a bigger impact with the team in 2020. Burton initially signed with Atlanta as an undrafted free agent in 2017 where he converted from wide receiver to cornerback. After spending his rookie year on Atlanta's practice squad and a brief stint with Green Bay early in 2018, Burton returned to the Falcons active roster where he played in one game. He ended up back on Atlanta's practice squad before signing with Houston. Burton finished 2018 with the Texans, playing in two games and a Wild Card playoff game.
