Joe Burrow’s NFL Journey

I have not spoken personally with Brown…

The latest NFL news and rumors have people wondering if Cincinnati Bengals star Joe Burrow will get paid, but first, the quarterback needs to get healthy. Burrow sustained an injury at the start of training camp, and the fact that the quarterback has not signed a contract extension makes things more complicated.

Any star with multiple nicknames AND who hangs out with Jack Harlow is about to get the bag, regardless of what you hear on NFL news outlets.

Contrary to what social media may tell you, the Bengals have some time to sign Burrow to a new lucrative contract. Joe Brrrrrr has one more season remaining on his $36 million rookie deal but will play on his fifth-year option in 2024 if a new contract is not reached.

This means the Bengals have Burrow under contract for two more seasons, not to mention the franchise tag option for 2025. But to quote Fat Joe, “Yesterday’s price is not today’s price.” The cost for quarterbacks is only rising, with both Justin Herbert and Lamar Jackson’s deals topping the $250 million mark.

What’s the Deal With Joe Burrow’s Injury?

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Burrow is dealing with a strained calf. The injury does not appear to be as severe as previously feared, but it does mean fans are unlikely to see Joe Shiesty play any preseason games.


If Burrow’s recovery does not progress as expected, the Bengals could find themselves in a hole to start the season. The Bengals‘ current backup is Trevor Siemian which should not give Cincy fans confidence that the team can maintain a similar level of play if Burrow is forced to miss time. Cincinnati did sign Reid Sinnett, who could challenge for the backup role.

Joey B Is Coming to Netflix!

Legendary writer Peter King created a bit of controversy by revealing Burrow will be featured on the Netflix show “Quarterback” for season two. King later deleted the tidbit, so the news was not supposed to be made public.


It remains to be seen who will join him as “Quarterback”, which is becoming the new version of “Hard Knocks,” with star quarterbacks rejecting the chance to appear in season two. Among the quarterbacks, Lamar Jackson, Dak Prescott, and Geno Smith admitted to rejecting being on the Netflix hit.

Burrow Is Projected to Land $270 Million

Bengals owner Paul Brown made his best “Fight Club” impression by saying that no one is going to talk publicly about Burrow’s next contract. Good luck with that.


I have not spoken personally with Brown, so I feel at ease with continuing my story here. Spotrac projects that Burrow’s market value is a five-year, $270 million contract. That would be just enough to get the name dropped on Harlow’s next track.
