Just-In: Elite Cincinnati Bengals Star Takes Massive Shot at New Signee…

A former Cincinnati Bengals standout, Vontaze Burfict, recently made a bold statement on social media regarding the team’s new signing, offensive tackle Trent Brown. Burfict, who briefly played alongside Brown during their time with the Oakland (Las Vegas) Raiders in 2019, referred to Brown as “soft.”

Burfict, notorious for his aggressive style of play, played only four games in the 2019 season before exiting the league, while Brown managed 11 games. Despite Brown’s solid Pro Football Focus grade of 80.2, which ranked him as the 11th-best tackle in the league, concerns persist about his durability. Brown has struggled with injuries throughout his nine-year NFL career, having played only three full seasons.

While Brown’s size and versatility make him an asset when healthy, Burfict’s critique contrasts sharply with his own reputation as a hard-hitting player during his time with the Bengals. Burfict, known for his physicality on the field, led the NFL in tackles during the 2013 season and gained notoriety for a controversial hit on Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown during a playoff game.

Despite the speculation surrounding Burfict’s comments on Brown, the Bengals will be counting on Brown’s availability to bolster their offensive line for a potential playoff push in 2024.
