“It’s crazy in my opinion, as far as the unbelievable standpoint,” Burns said. “I just can’t believe it, but I’m glad to fill those shoes. I’m glad to really contribute to this team, so I’m ready.”
Burns remembers watching his brother hanging around teammates like Peppers and seeing the way one needs to take care of his body to last nearly two decades in the NFL, even if it didn’t sink in for an 8-year-old kid.
“I saw it, and my brother told me, back when I was younger, but I didn’t really understand it that much,” Burns said. “When I grew, and actually looking at [Peppers] and following him on Instagram now, I really realized how much he took care of his body, and how important that is. I definitely feel like that is a major key in him playing that long.”
How does Burns intend to cap his draft day? Spider-Man is going to the movies.
“The main way I want to celebrate is by going to see ‘Avengers: Endgame,’” Burns said.
