The Bengals have agreed to an extension with linebacker Vontaze Burfict according to Adam Schefter. Burfict is suspended for the first three games of the 2017 season. His contract was up after this year before the extension. Star tight end Tyler Eifert is now the most notable Bengals player set to hit free agency after the 2017 season.
