Defensive back and (likely) return-specialist Morgan Burns has signed with the Tennessee Titans according to multiple sources.

Burns was a two-year starter for the Wildcats at corner back, and appeared in 48 career games. A 2015 Team Captain, Burns was more known for his kickoff return prowess than his cover skills, ending his Wildcat career as the single-season record holder for kickoff return yardage (third for a career, following a fairly illustrious line of return men), and ranking second in school history in return average. He also tied the K-State record with four returns for TD's.

Burns will look to earn a spot on a Titans squad that saw a three-man rotation at returner that failed to take any returns for TD's in 2015. The All-American should be up to that challenge.
