TEAMS: Buffalo Bills
Arizona St. LB Vontaze Burfict has been much maligned with a reputation of being a hot-head on the field drawing a number of personal foul penalties and getting benched twice in his career for acting out on the field. In an effort to help him control his emotions more effectively he’s working with a veteran Bills LB leading up to the draft. “I’ve been working with a guy named Nick Barnett who’s with my agency,” said Burfict. ”He and I have been working on things I can do in the locker room and off the field because this is a business now and there are things you cannot do in business.” Barnett has offered advice and worked with Burfict in the film room concerning the linebacker position. We hope to bring you more on this story on soon.
