In a day where there are plenty of free agent signings and cuts, sometimes there are trades. While there’s not a big one yet, according to Chris Renkel of CBS 42, the Oakland Raiders are reportedly working on a trade that would land linebacker Vontaze Burfict from the Cincinnati Bengals.
Burfict, 27, has been with the Bengals ever since he was signed as an undrafted free agent out of Arizona State in 2012. Days before the 2017 season, he signed a three-year extension with the team worth north of $38 million and a $3.3 million signing bonus.
It’s not clear yet what pieces are being discussed or what the Bengals want for Burfict, but we’ll keep you updated as this story goes on.
