Vontaze Burfict Suspended First 3 Games Of 2016 Season For Baptizing Antonio Brown


After Saturday’s Wild Card game against the Pittsburgh Steelers concluded, you sort of knew this was coming. Vontaze Burfict delivered a bone jarring hit against WR Antonio Brown that left him limp on the field.

Burfict’s agent, Audie Attar, told NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport he plans to appeal the suspension.

This is the fourth safety-related punishment Burfict has been given in 2015. Actions against the Steelers in Week 14 cost him nearly $70,000 in fines. This is the first suspension he’s been given.
