Bengals Controversy: Is Burfict a bother, or is the team keeping it together?

While Bengals players have not been active on social media since training camp began Friday, running back Jeremy Hill contradicted suggestions of tension in camp.

He fetched some prompt fan reaction, too:

For all the eraser attempts, Burfict was in the middle of the mess frequently Tuesday, and while he’s at times the second best player on the defense, knowing whether he’s going to make a big play or a big penalty is a guessing game.
