Steelers fans likely feel the same about Burfict, who was suspended without pay for the first three games of the regular season for repeated violations of safety-related playing rules -- including a vicious hit on Antonio Brown in January's insane wild-card tilt that left the Pittsburgh wideout with a concussion.
"I own the Bengals, not the Steelers," said Brown, per Geoff Hobson of the team's official website. "You can guess where I stand. But I won't comment."
Added Brown, per ESPN.com's Coley Harvey: "Vontaze Burfict is one hell of a football player. We want him on the football field. We regret that we won't have him for three games, but he'll be back after that. He's a difference maker, and we're lucky to have him."
