Vontaze Burfict is likely to have a bunch of time on his hands after the league dropped the hammer on him and suspended him for the remainder of the 2019 season.
Shawne Merriman has the perfect job for him.
The former NFL linebacker, who currently helps run the Lights Out Xtreme Fighting league, told TMZ Sports that he wants the Raiders linebacker to bring his violence to the MMA world.
“He’s going to have a lot of time on his hands and he needs to put it to good use,” Merriman tells TMZ Sports. “So, bring some of that aggression over here!”
“I just talked to my partners right now,” Merriman tells us. “We want to make Vontaze Burfict an offer to come and fight.”
Burfict is currently in the process of appealing the season-long suspension, but it is likely to be upheld after the league found another helmet-to-helmet hit in the game against the Colts that got him thrown out.
