Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict is once again in the news for all the wrong reasons. Seen as one of the dirtiest players in the game, he has not done his reputation too well in recent seasons.
Now, Burfict is facing a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s Performance Enhancing Drug Policy.

We’ve seen Burfict suspended before for on-field antics. But this takes everything to an entirely new level. One now has to wonder if the Bengals simply decide to move on from one of the game’s most enigmatic personalities.
An undrafted free agent back in 2012 due to issues at Arizona State, Burfict earned a Pro Bowl nod with the Bengals back in 2013. Since then, he’s missed 28 games due to a combination of injuries and suspensions. The time might very well be now for Cincinnati to say enough is enough.
