Bengals set to extend LB Vontaze Burfict

CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- ESPN's Adam Caplan reporting Wednesday afternoon that the Bengals and linebacker Vontaze Burfict have agreed to a contract extension. Local 12's Brad Johansen was able to confirm that there is a deal in place.

Johansen was also able to confirm the structure of the deal: $10 million over the next six months, $7.6 million this year, then $2 million due next March. The Bengals were able to do the deal early because Burfict was an undrafted free agent. Burfict will make a total of $20 million over the length of the deal.

This will put the Bengals near or over the cap, as they will likely put away $5 million dollars to take care of injured players this year.
