News: The Bengals and Burfict have agreed to a three-year contract extension that will pay the Pro Bowl linebacker a maximum of $20.05 million through 2017, a person familiar with the deal tells The Associated Press. Impact: Burfict is making $570,000 in the final year of his original deal with Cincinnati, which took a minimal risk and signed him as an undrafted free agent from Arizona State in 2012. Under his extension, he'll make $10 million through next summer, said the person speaking on condition of anonymity because the deal hasn't been signed or announced by the team. (STATS, 8:22pm)

News: Burfict signed a four-year, $20 million extension with the Bengals on Wednesday, ESPN reports. Impact: Burfict went undrafted out of Arizona State in 2012, but signed with the Bengals as a free agent and has paid huge dividends for the team ever since. In fact, Burfict led the NFL with 171 tackles (114 solo) last season, which brought his two-year total to a whopping 298 stops. Additionally, Cincinnati's starting weakside linebacker added three sacks, two fumble recoveries, and one interception last season. As such, Burfict played his way to a much deserved pay raise that will see him earn $7.6 million this year. Entering his third season, Burfict is firmly entrenched as one of fantasy football's premier IDP options.(RotoWire, )
