Netflix’s “Quarterback” series recently concluded a stellar first season, raising questions about the star-studded lineup for its next. Joe Burrow, despite his initial reluctance due to his self-proclaimed aversion to media attention, might just be in the frame. The tweet by MLfootball paints a different picture from Burrow’s earlier stance, hinting at his potential appearance in Season 2. But could it be that a chat or maybe an irresistible offer from Peyton Manning, the show’s executive producer, swayed his mind?

A report fuels this theory even further, which states, “Maybe Burrow had a change of heart or Netflix might’ve added another zero to their original offer.” The deep bond between Manning and Burrow, previously seen when the rookie quarterback sought advice on life as a first-round pick, does add to the speculation.
