Hey guys I'm a big Vontaze Burfict fan, will be following him closely with you guys, really think him and Rey Maualuga(another guy who I'm a big fan of) will be a great combo together at MLB\SLB.

Was wondering how has Vontaze looked so far early on in TC aswell as in your OTA's and do you guys think he's got a shot of playing for you guys right away?

Supposedly he looks like he has lost a bunch of weight. So far he is running with the 3rd team at MLB. If he makes the team, he isnt going to start, and hes gonna need to play Special Teams. If he impresses he might battle Dan Skuta for playing time at MLB if Rey Maualuga is suspended to open the season. If he doesnt make the team, they will absolutely try to keep him on the practice squad.

Vontaze has made a good impression so far. He's pretty far down the depth chart and might not make the 53 but the team is likely to offer him a practice squad slot. As JD said, there's a possibility that Rey Maualuga gets suspended for a game or two due to an off-field incident. That would certainly improve Burfict's chances but nothing's been heard about discipline from the league.

He's not going on the practice squad. He will make the roster or be cut. Why? He has too much talent to go to the PS. If he is cut, it's for issues that lie between his ears, so to speak. If they tried to sneak him onto it, other teams would gobble him up.
