Vontaze Burfict officially suspended four games for PEDs Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict is officially suspended for the first four games of the 2018 season.

The NFL announced today that Burfict is suspended for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.

The suspension was reported last month, but at that point Burfict was still hoping he could win an appeal based on a claim that his failed test took place after he had already been ruled out for the season. But that appeal never stood a chance, and now the suspension is official.

Maybe I’m wrong. (It wouldn’t be this first time this week today.) Maybe Belichick is losing his cloak-and-dagger fastball. Regardless, when it comes to the Patriots’ plans for restocking the most important position in football via the draft — a matter of critical importance with the Brady Train pulling into the station — it’s hard to imagine Belichick allowing anyone to know what he truly thinks, and it’s easy to think that any reports or rumors as to what he thinks have made their way into the public eye for a reason.

The Cowboys selected Escobar in the second round in 2013, and he appeared in 62 games his first four seasons. Backing up Jason Witten, Escobar caught only 30 passes but scored eight touchdowns.

He failed to make the Chiefs’ roster last season and played only two games with the Ravens last season, spending less than a month in Baltimore.

The Browns also waived six players Thursday, moving on from linebacker Max Bullough, wide receiver Bug Howard., tight end Matt Lengel, wide receiver Larry Pinkard, defensive back C.J. Smith and running back Kelvin Taylor.

Weather also wiped out Toronto’s game at Cleveland on Sunday, one of six games around the majors to be postponed. It was the second straight weather-related postponement for the Indians and Blue Jays.

Sting sweats with the regular folk.

The superstar and a friend were spotted taking a cycling class at Flywheel Lincoln Square earlier this week.

A source tells us the 66-year-old, wearing black leggings and a gray T-shirt, and his pal kicked back on the couch outside the studio exchanging energetic chitchat before their class.

Crowley told The Post the blow made her completely deaf in one ear for three and a half months.

On the drive to her apartment, Manziel threatened to kill them both, Crowley said, and was laughing and crying simultaneously.

I think there was some mental breakdown because the way he was acting, it wasn’t anything like drugs or alcohol would affect a person, she said. This was more deep-rooted.

Police responded Saturday night to an incident involving the suspended Raider, but he was not there when they arrived, police said.

The victim suffered nonlife-threatening injuries, police said in a statement, according to the Mercury News. The suspect fled the scene prior to police arrival and was identified as professional football player Aldon Smith, a 28-year-old Oakland resident.

Smith has not played in the NFL since 2015 but is on Oakland’s reserve/suspended list. He was suspended a year following a hit-and-run that year and has not been reinstated since.

Smith, who was a Pro Bowler in 2012 for the 49ers, when he totaled 19.5 sacks, has a lengthy list of run-ins with the law. Smith was charged with three felony counts of illegal possession of an assault weapon for an 2012 incident in which he was reportedly stabbed. He was arrested in 2012 and 2013 for suspicion of DUI and in 2014 for not cooperating with a TSA agent, who claimed he said he had a bomb.

Super Bowl 52: Patriots elect to wear white

New England is sticking to its superstition.

The Patriots have elected to wear their white road jerseys over their blue home uniforms in Super Bowl 52 in Minneapolis against the Eagles, the team announced Tuesday.

Just give them all the props for that, said Torin Dorn, who had 13 points. But we’ve got to be better.

Miami gave 5-foot-7 freshman Chris Lykes his first start with fellow rookie Lonnie Walker IV battling a back problem. Lykes had six points and five assists in 22 minutes.

Larranaga said Walker’s back tightened up so badly Friday night that he couldn’t bend enough to touch his knees, keeping him out of Saturday’s practice and putting his status in question until tipoff. Walker finished with 12 points in 30 minutes.

Miami’s Anthony Lawrence II and Ebuka Izundu each scored 15 points, with Izundu going 7 for 7 off the bench after managing just 12 points and six made baskets in his previous six games combined.

A source told Sporting News that Farwell is interviewing to become the Panthers’ new assistant special teams coach.

Farwell took the same position with Seattle in 2016, one year removed from a four-year stint as a Seahawks special teams captain and backup linebacker.

The Panthers have a vacancy following Chase Blackburn’s promotion to head special teams coach. Blackburn is replacing Thomas McGaughey, whose contract expired. McGaughey has subsequently reached agreement to become the Giants’ new special teams coach.

Farwell carved his NFL niche on special teams after making the Vikings in 2005 as a college free agent from San Diego State. He spent six seasons with the Vikings, earning Pro Bowl honors on special teams in 2009.

Saints players troll Vikings after blowout loss in NFC championship game

The Saints were clearly still very bitter about their last-second loss to the Vikings last week. During and after the Eagles’ 38-7 beatdown of the Vikings on Sunday night, Saints players, such as Michael Thomas, got in a few jabs on social media.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is doing right by Tony Romo. The question is what comes next as the NFL’s quarterback-needy teams try to fill that position when the league’s signing window opens at 4 p.m. Thursday.

The Cowboys are expected to release Romo on Thursday, according to a person familiar with the situation, confirming several reports. The Cowboys can designate Romo as a post-June 1 release, enabling them to spread the salary cap hit of the move over two seasons instead of one.

LeBeau had been the Titans defensive coordinator the last three seasons and helped the Titans improve from 20th in total defense in 2016 to 13th in 2017.

If LeBeau does retire, it will end a coaching career that began in 1973 as the Eagles special teams coach. After three seasons in Philadelphia, he joined the Packers staff as a defensive backs coach in 1976.

LeBeau rejoined the Bengals in 1997 as the defensive coordinator on Bruce Coslett’s staff. When Coslett resigned in 2000, LeBeau became the head coach. Though considered one of the best defensive coordinators in NFL history, LeBeau was just 12-33 over two-plus seasons as the Bengals head coach. He was fired following the 2002 season and spent on year as the Bills assistant head coach before returning to Pittsburgh.
