No. 1 pick Burrow signs Bengals contract

No. 1 overall draft pick Joe Burrow officially signed his rookie contract with the Cincinnati Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium on Friday.

He announced his signing on Instagram, simply writing, “I signed a paper today.”

Burrow is waiting for results of his COVID-19 testing before taking part in on-field activities.

Burrow’s slotted contract value is $36.1 million over four years, all fully guaranteed, with a $23.9 million signing bonus. Like all first-round picks, his deal has a fifth-year team option.

Burrow, 23, was drafted No. 1 in late April, capping an incredible rise from being a transfer from Ohio State to LSU to winning the Heisman Trophy in a record landslide after throwing for 5,671 yards and 60 touchdowns.

LSU went 15-0 and won the national championship, beating Clemson in the title game.
