Joe Burrow of LSU is the presumptive first pick in the NFL Draft, with seemingly nothing standing between the Cincinatti Bengals and what appears to be the most pro ready quarterback prospect to hit the league since Andrew Luck. And it seems, with this in mind, the two parties are in regular contact with one another. According to a report by Peter King of NBC, during a recent meeting, Joe Burrow and the team have come as far as discussing personnel, with Burrow telling the team he wanted them to keep star wide receiver AJ Green. In accordance with that plan, the Bengals intend to apply the franchise tag to the wideout who may enjoy the opportunity to give it a go with a new quarterback after wallowing in the mediocrity of Andy Dalton.

“He’s still very talented, because of the time off a fresh body, and when he’s on the field, in man coverage he’s a guy you look at and go, ‘Oh, that guy’s gonna win consistently.’ You can build your pass game around AJ Green,” Dan Orlovsky said on Get Up of Green, noting that he is still a difference maker on the field despite some recent injuries. “You go to a billion dollar company, you say this is what I want, this is what I need, I love this out of Joe Burrow.”

More telling perhaps is that the Bengals, a team all to often unable to get out of their own way, actually took the opportunity to listen to the incoming rookie. Between not outsmarting themselves on the pick itself and actually giving Burrow a weapon to work with when he gets there, we may finally see Cincy turn a corner as a franchise.
