Giants Now: Social media reaction to Brian Burns trade


Social media reaction to Brian Burns trade

The Giants made a big splash at the start of free agency, agreeing on a trade with the Carolina Panthers for outside linebacker Brian Burns before signing the young edge rusher to a multi-year extension.

The 25-year-old was set to be one of the top free agents on the market this offseason before the Panthers placed the franchise tag on him.

His 46 career sacks are tied for 12th in the NFL since he entered the league in 2019, while his 59 tackles for loss are tied for sixth-most in that span. The 6-foot-5, 250-pounder also has 95 quarterback hits, eight forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries. Burns has never recorded fewer than 7.5 sacks and 16 quarterback hits in a season, which he did as a rookie. Burns posted career-highs in sacks (12.5) and quarterback hits (22) in 2022, when he earned his second consecutive Pro Bowl nod.

Here is how the NFL world reacted to the big trade on social media.
