"It's very exciting to sign my first NFL contract, because it's a dream come true," Burgess said in a telephone interview from Anna Arbor, Mich. "Now, I just have to show them the physical part and the mental part. I'm really looking forward to training camp."

The Warren, Ohio native was an All-Big Ten Conference honorable-mention selection, recording 192 career tackles, including 108 solos, along with four sacks, four interceptions and 10 1/2 tackles for losses. He was recruited to Michigan as a safety, but outgrew the position at 6-foot-3, 240 pounds.
