Vontaze Burfict Could Be Suspended For Remainder Of 2019 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Mon Sep 30, 2019 2:40 pm

Vontaze Burfict could be banned for the remainder of the season for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Jack Doyle of the Indianapolis Colts.

Burfict was initially flagged for hitting Doyle in the head across the middle. But after the officials conferred, Burfict was thrown out.

Burfict has received 13 suspensions and fines in seven seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals before signing with the Raiders as a free agent this offseason.

I get that he's got a history of dirty play, but a 12 game suspension seems a bit harsh. They are treating him like a domestic violence offender. You might want to fix the title in the original article, it still says that he WAS suspended, not "could be"
