Burfict taunted fans and made a "money" sign while walking off the field.
Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict may be in trouble with the National Football League again after being ejected in the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans. An NFL spokesman denied those claims, telling Schefter it's not out of the ordinary for officials to come into contact with players.
According to NFL.com, Burfict was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct.
A few plays earlier, Burfict was flagged for a late hit out of bounds on Titans running back DeMarco Murray. However, he very clearly shoves the ref's arm away as he's trying to hold Burfict back from any further issue with the Titans players.
Burfict was also suspended the first three games of the 2016 season for numerous violations of player safety rules, including an illegal hit on Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown during the 2015 playoffs.
Given Burfict's history and reputation, he may serve additional punishment for the incident on Sunday.
