Vontaze Burfict has agreed to a one-year deal with the Oakland Raiders worth up to $5 million.
Burfict will reunite with defensive coordinator Paul Guenther, who held the same role with the Bengals from 2014 to 2017.
Burfict downplayed any lingering tension with former AFC North rival Antonio Brown.
"We're on the same team," Burfict said. "It's one goal. It's all positive, man. He's a great player. ... I'm going to approach him just like I do all my other teammates. ... There's nothing negative here. We're on the same team. We're trying to win a championship here.
"Honestly, we might be the closest friends on the team, you know what I mean? So, just got to go along with it, and I can't wait to meet him."
