Report says Bengals get Burfict
Posted 10 hours ago

BURFICT IN FOLD: ProFootballTalk.com reported Saturday night that the Bengals have signed the first big college free agent in Arizona State middle linebacker Vontaze Burfict.

The 6-1, 248-pound Burfict is one of the most curious cases in recent draft history. He went from being a first-round pick to undrafted in a stunning small amount of time. He followed up 16 personal fouls in his last 26 games with a lackluster combine and on Thursday FOXsports.com reported he tested positive for marijuana at the combine.

But if anyone can get him to play within a system and under control, it is Lewis and defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer. Lewis has close ties to Arizona State and was at the school's pro day last month.

The Bengals didn't draft any linebackers and are expected to load up on them in free agency, especially on the outside. Word is they're close to bringing in Arkansas State's Brandon Joiner, the Sun Belt Conference's Defensive Player of the Year after ranking fourth in the nation in sacks while also being among the national leaders in tackles for loss. Plus, a local product from Lakota West High School who played at Butler, Grant Hunter, may be on the way as well.

Why am I not surprised that the Bengals picked up Burfict? Oh, that's right... because they're the Bengals.

He'll fit right in their "work release" program. And since when has Lewis and Zimmer helped any of their criminals behave? That comment was a stretch. All I can say is Good Luck Marvin.
