With a contract guarantee of $87.75 million, Burns will become the second-highest-paid defensive end in NFL history.

Panthers will receive a second- and fifth-round picks in 2024 and 2025 in exchange for Burns. In the 2024 draft, the teams will also trade fifth-round selections, according to ESPN’s sources.
