As noted by NFL.com, this is far from the first time Burfict has engaged in cheap shots that led to disciplinary action:
“Burfict has a history of suspensions and fines for dirty hits and questionable play throughout his career. Of the 10 games Burfict has missed during his career, six have been due to violations of player safety rules. He was suspended the first three games of the 2016 season for multiple player safety violations and he missed another three games in 2017 for a hit on a defenseless player.”
don't forget, that's TEAM CAPTAIN vontaze burfict.

If you were wondering if he showed any remorse on the way out…

Some believe that should be the last straw for him.
I don't mind saying it again: Vontaze Burfict is the dirtiest player in NFL history. Firmly believe that. And he should really be booted from the league.

That should be Vontaze Burfict's last down of NFL football
