Vontaze Burfict lands with Raiders on one-year deal

The Raiders are signing Vontaze Burfict to a one-year contract.

Fantasy Impact

The signing makes sense when you consider Oakland's defensive coordinator spent years with Burfict in Cincinnati. The 28-year-old linebacker plays an extremely violent brand of football, which has resulted in numerous injuries and suspension over the past few years. He should get plenty of run with the Raiders when healthy, however.

Vontaze Burfict released by Bengals

Dianna Russini of ESPN reports the Bengals have released linebacker Vontaze Burfict.

Fantasy Impact

The move will save the Bengals over $5 million against the cap. The 28-year-old linebacker should find a job with another team soon enough but has been hampered by injuries and suspensions in recent seasons. Burfict is known as being one of the dirtiest players in football so it’ll be interesting to see what his market is like.

Vontaze Burfict: Concussion issues could threaten career

Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict suffered his seventh career concussion (that we know of) in last Sunday’s loss to the Bengals. It was his second in a month, putting his career in jeopardy.

Fantasy Impact

Burfict is currently in the league’s concussion protocol and, while not yet officially ruled out, is unlikely to play in the season finale. He may have some tough decisions to make about his future in football this offseason.
