Terrell Edmunds is the starter, and even if he’s not, Morgan Burnett should not be. The 2018 signing proved very quickly he’s not a starting safety in the NFL anymore. He has a difficult time staying with receivers in coverage and was outplayed by Edmunds all season.
Even if he’s still on contract for the next season, Pittsburgh won’t lose much getting rid of their former free agent move. Fans were excited when the signing happened, but as the season progressed you realized quick that Burnett was not an upgrade from Mike Mitchell.
This team needs to get their secondary in shape, likely drafting a cornerback and signing a safety. It’d be interesting to see a player who’s still got some quality years in front of him play with Sean Davis and Edmunds. It could be the difference in how well this secondary plays in 2019.
