Burrow prepared to land with Bengals: 'I'm not gonna not play'

Burrow wasn't even in the Heisman Trophy discussion before the year kicked off but helped one bettor turn $50 into $10,000 on his way to getting 93.8% of the vote to secure the award and his performance made him the obvious frontrunner to become the first pick in this year's NFL Draft. "The way I look at these contracts, the two we are talking about [Prescott and Cooper], when things get momentum they can happen in 24 hours".

Presumably, the loud cheering heard here came from Bengals fans 100 miles away, who see Burrow as player to lead them out of last season's 2-14 hell. And carry LSU to a record unbeaten season en route to a national championship.

One of the top players in the 2020 NFL Draft wants to play for the league's marquee franchise. "That's every kid's dream".

"The hypotheticals, really it's not really anything I've spent much time thinking about", he said.

Which means if the Cincinnati Bengals take Burrow with the first pick, Burrow, who graduated from Athens High in The Plains, Ohio, is ready to slip on a Bengals jersey. They might pick me, they might fall in love with someone else. "I'm a ballplayer. Whoever picks me, I'm going to show up". It's the draft. You guys have been covering it for a long time. Ryan Tannehill and Jared Goff, the others with that hand size, were both instructed by current Cincinnati Bengals coach Zac Taylor. "But I didn't have a lot of fumbles or anything like that, so I just tried to make a little joke out of it".

Transport authorities in New South Wales said there were approximately 160 passengers on board the train. Several other passengers were being treated for injuries, emergency services said.


Jones would not get into whether the Cowboys would use the nonexclusive franchise tag, which would cost $27 million but allow Prescott to shop the market, or exclusive tag, which would cost $33 million and prevent teams from signing him. A serious hip injury on November 16 in a game against Mississippi State hurt Tagovailoa's draft stock, though he's still expected to be a top-10 pick. But it sounds like the Bengals may have only eyes for Burrow. Through these interviews, you just talk ball and that's what I enjoy doing.

"I'm just looking forward to competing", Eason said.

Burrow said he wouldn't work out during the combine this week, preferring to wait for LSU's Pro Day on April 3 in Baton Rouge. He has nothing to prove - or hide. After his measurements surfaced, Burrow hilariously announced that he's considering retirement.

On Tuesday, he said hand size only matters "if you fumble a lot".
