Last Friday, the Bengals signed Preston Brown thinking he would work side by side with Vontaze Burfict but the same day learned that Burfict was facing yet another four game suspension. This time it is different. It is for violating the PED policy. He usually gets suspended for stupid hits on the field. He is appealing this but no date has been set yet.
Should the Bengals cut Vontaze Burfict due to violating the NFL’s PED policy? The answer is no and this is why.
- This is his first offense violating an off the field policy of any kind.
- The reason for the appeal mainly is that they want to call this a non reported substance. He was taking medication for not only the hit he took from Juju but also a shoulder injury he suffered during the Lions game. Then he so conveniently took his test a week after.
- When he isn’t getting suspended for on the field issues you can’t match the ability to Burfict at Linebacker. He could be one of the best in the game right now.
