Vontaze Burfict should have been kicked out of the NFL a long time ago. Known as one of the dirtiest players in the league, Burfict is now taking cheap shots at his own teammates. During the Bengals practice today, Burfict ignited a brawl after going low on teammate Giovani Bernard, who was coming back from an ACL injury. Nobody on the team was happy with Burfict especially after he shoved the team’s running backs coach Kyle Casey after the play.

After further review, it looks like Burfict pushes RB coach Kyle Caskey. I’ve watched it multiple times. https://t.co/ztxJuTs8DI

The jawing between Burfict and Eifert didn’t end after the shoving match:

Burfict was suspended for the first three games of the 2016 season after numerous violations of the NFL’s player safety rules. In just five NFL seasons, he has been fined nearly $800,000 and has been flagged 16 times for either unnecessary roughness, a personal foul or roughing the passer. He has more than earned his reputation as the NFL’s dirtiest player.
It’s clear the Bengals aren’t big fans of Burfict’s antics either.
