Vontaze Burfict’s violent nature on the football field has cost him some games in the past, but nothing quite compares to his latest offense.
The NFL announced Monday that Burfict has been suspended for the remainder of the 2019 season for repeated violations of unnecessary roughness rules. The suspension comes a day after the Raiders linebacker was tossed from Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts for a vicious hit on tight end Jack Doyle.
Burfict is no stranger to discipline from the league. He’s been fined and/or suspended every year since he entered the league in 2012.
Burfict is expected to appeal the suspension, but it seems the league has run out of patience for his recklessness.
