Falcons sign Deante Burton to active roster


FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – The Falcons have signed cornerback Deante Burton to their active roster, moving him up from the practice squad.

Burton spent the 2017 season on the Falcons' practice squad after the team signed him as an undrafted free agent in the offseason. Burton moved from wide receiver to cornerback in his first year with the Falcons and was signed to Atlanta's practice squad following the 2018 preseason.

The Falcons had only 52 players on their active roster prior to this move, so they do not need to make a corresponding move.
