Draft Scout *Vontaze Burfict News
11/13/17 - LB linebacker Vontaze Burfict was called for two personal fouls, earning an ejection for contacting an official after Titans QB Marcus Mariota scrambled 8 yards to the 1-yard line. It was the first ejection in the career of Burfict, who was suspended for the season's first three games after repeated rules violations.
11/13/17 - LB Vontaze Burfict is being provoked by NFL officials, according to a report by ESPN's Adam Schefter who cited one of Burfict's teammates as the source.
The unnamed Bengals player said he heard officials cursing at Burfict on multiple occasions. With 5:12 left in the first half of Sunday's 24-20 loss to the Tennessee Titans, Burfict was ejected from the game by referee Jeff Triplette after Burfict made contact with a game official.
10/23/17 - LB Vontaze Burfict was involved in a skirmish with a Pittsburgh Steelers player.
On the first play of Sunday's game at Heinz Field -- a 29-14 Steelers' win - Burfict appeared to kick the facemask of Steelers fullback Roosevelt Nix who was blocking him on a short gain by Le'Veon Bell.
Nix pushed Burfict off Bell, the kick followed. It wasn't among Burfict's most egregious actions, but it prompted Bell to tweet "man dude gotta go man ... that's not football AT ALL!!" The Cincinnati Enquirer reported on Monday that Burfict will not be suspended, but the play would be reviewed by the league. Burfict was suspended the first three games of the season for an illegal hit during the preseason. He's considered a repeat offender of player safety violations.
10/22/17 - LB Vontaze Burfict refused to shake hands with three Steelers captains at the pre-game coin toss.
10/04/17 - LB Vontaze Burfict's track record for on-field infractions isn't good. But, his unsportsmanlike penalty in Sunday's game at Cleveland remains a head-scratcher for the Bengals.
Burfict appeared to hit Browns QB DeShone Kizer square with the shoulder pads as he released a pass that was intercepted. "I thought he hit him square," defensive coordinator Paul Guenther said. "I couldn't draw it up any more. They said he fell on top of him. I don't know. I don't know. It is a good play. It took away an interception." Burfict was suspended three games to begin this season for an illegal hit during a preseason game.
