Barring a major surprise, LSU quarterback Joe Burrow is going to be a Cincinnati Bengal in a few short months. Considering the Bengals have not won a playoff game in two decades, many have wondered if Burrow would prefer to play someplace else. There has been no indication that the Heisman Trophy winner feels that way.

According to one report from Fox 19’s Jeremy Rauch in Cincinnati, Burrow's family is getting annoyed with the narrative that he could "pull an Eli Manning" by refusing to play for the team that drafts him.

Manning and his father, Archie, stated publicly before the 2004 NFL Draft that Manning would refuse to sign a contract with the San Diego Chargers if they drafted him. The Chargers drafted Manning with the first overall pick anyway, but they immediately traded him to the New York Giants for Philip Rivers.

There was some belief that a precedent would be set for other quarterbacks to do the same, but we haven’t seen it since.

Burrow lived in Ohio when he was a kid and played high school ball in Athens, where he set numerous records. That probably helps the Bengals in this situation, but Burrow has also said he is willing to play for any NFL team that wants him.

Eli Manning tips his cap to Derek Jeter .
Eli Manning and Derek Jeter will always be remembered as legends of Big Apple sports. That both had historic weeks, with Manning announcing his retirement just days after Jeter was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame, seems appropriate. During Manning’s farewell address, the Giants quarterback was asked about what he’d learned from the former Yankee Captain, who was voted into Cooperstown on Tuesday. It was an appropriate question given Manning’s own star status in New York, even if his chances of becoming a Hall of Famer also don’t seem as surefire as No. 2′s. “You know, Derek was great,” Manning said.
