CINCINNATI — The Bengals still have no word on whether linebacker Vontaze Burfict has signed his new contract.
On Wednesday, it was reported that Burfict and the team agreed to a four-year, $20 million extension. But coach Marvin Lewis touched only lightly on the topic yesterday after practice.
“How we believe it here, until the club and the player have signed off, it’s not signed off,” Lewis said.
As for if Lewis expects him to sign, he said: “I would guess we expect him to sign. Obviously, the agent believes he has a deal. We didn’t release it.”
