Burfict emerges as center of Bengals defense

CINCINNATI (AP) Linebacker Vontaze Burfict has gone from low-risk investment to the heart of the Bengals defense in only two years.

Cincinnati thinks so much of its Pro Bowl linebacker that it's molding one of the league's best defenses around him in only his third season. And coach Marvin Lewis, who has craved a leader in the style of former Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, thinks he has one in the making.

"I thought Vontaze had those qualities really early on," Lewis said. "He was one of the best players I had seen after his first practice. I told him he was going to be a very good player. He's not disappointed me.
