Bengals reportedly part with Vontaze Burfict

The Cincinnati Bengals released linebacker Vontaze Burfict, reports Dianna Russini of ESPN.

What It Means:

Burfict appeared in just 43-of-80 games over the last five seasons due to multiple concussions and suspensions. Entering what will be his age-29 campaign, Burfict is unlikely to return to the level of play that earned him a Pro Bowl bid in 2013.

Burfict recorded 33 tackles (16 solo) and 3 pass deflections in seven games last season.
