Joe Burrow arrived in the NFL on the back of a stellar season with the Louisiana State University. The former LSU man bagged the Heisman Trophy at the end of 2019 college football season for his impressive display. Burrow led his side to a win over the Clemson Tigers in the National Championship final.
The Iowa-born quarterback became the number one NFL draft pick. He was drafted by Cincinnati Bengals in the first round. As confirmed earlier, Joe Burrow will be the starting quarterback for the Bengals.
Here’s what he had to say about his mentality heading into the 2020 season.
As opposed to last year, the Bengals start the 2020 season with renewed optimism and hope. A lot of that stems from the arrival of the rookie quarterback, Joe Burrow, in the offseason.
Burrow was magnificent in 2019 while playing for LSU. He threw for 5,500+ yards and completed 60 TDs last year. Based on the initial analysis of the 23-year-old’s offseason prep, it will be safe to assume that he is in line for a strong debut in the NFL.
Cincinnati Bengals’ AJ Green is gearing up for a crucial season in the league this year. Head Coach Zac Taylor is expecting his star wideout to come through when the season starts this week.
“[Having Green back] is huge. He’s one of the best receivers in the NFL. To see him live and in-person for really the first time this training camp is significant for our team. It gives us an enormous weapon out there on the outside that people are really going to be concerned about.
“He and Joe [Burrow] have formed a nice connection and good chemistry, so we are excited to work him back into the fold and have him for Week 1,” Taylor said in an interview.
The Bengals start their 2020 campaign with a tough outing against Los Angeles Chargers on their home turf. Head coach Zac Taylor will be hoping that both stars, Joe Burrow and AJ Green, find their feet before the league kicks off on September 11, 2020.
