From NFL insider Jay Glazer:

Burfict has already been dogged by a history of personal

latest red flag may be the last straw for NFL teams who

According to another report from NFL reporter Aaron Wilson of,
Burfict admitted past marijuana use to NFL teams during
the interview process at the Combine.

“I talked to some teams, and I told them I had
smoked marijuana before,” Burfict told Scout. “It’s not
like I’m the only person that has ever done that.”

When asked if he still smokes marijuana, Burfict replied:
“No, of course not. I don’t smoke anymore.”
