Joe Burrow would be happy to play in Cincinnati, but Bengals coach is not ready to talk about it

Joe Burrow to Cincinnati is already brewing, I mean it has to happen right?

Joe Burrow the LSU gunslinger would have no problems being drafted first overall by the Cincinnati Bengals according to his Father Jimmy Burrow.

“He’s excited to even be in that conversation and if the Bengals do draft him, he’s going to be happy,” Jimmy Burrow told Montreal’s TSN 690 radio, via Ben Baby of

“He’ll look at it as a challenge,” Jimmy Burrow said. “But he’ll be confident that eventually, they can win a lot of games there in Cincinnati.”

While some inside the Bengals organization are gushing about the fact of adding Burrow, their dead coach will not commit just yet.

“We’ve started the process of evaluating him,” Taylor said. “We certainly have a long way to go before making decisions on what we’re doing with the first pick. That’s been exciting. We’re not preparing for an opponent, so we have a chance to jump into the actual film work for all the position groups. . . .

“It was impressive. There’s no doubt. I’d like to make sure we’re a little more thorough on our film evaluation with a lot of guys before we start making statements on players. But certainly he had an impressive year.”

It sounds like the Bengals staff is impressed but will they take him? Can they pass on a stud quarterback like him? What if an amazing trade comes along, can the Bengals mess this up?
