Joe Burrow hits the jackpot, 12 of 14 LSU 2020 NFL draft choices have now signed contracts

Former Tigers’ Heisman Trophy winning QB Joe Burrow, the overall No. 1 pick by the Cincinnati Bengals, became on Tuesday the 12th LSU 2020 NFL Draft choice to agree to contract terms as training camp began.

On Thursday, Burrow will officially sign a 4-year, $36,190,137 contract including a $23,880,100 signing bonus that will be paid to him within 15 days of signing.

The Bengals have been extremely impressed with Burrow’s work ethic and intelligence. Quarterbacks coach Dan Pitcher recently told Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic that Pitcher and Burrow have discussed possibly using some LSU plays from its explosive 2019 offense.

“We looked at (LSU film) with him and he (Burrow) was able to share his thoughts about what he really liked and wanted to continue doing,” Pitcher said. “He and Brian would talk about it, say, ‘We very easily can incorporate these because we already do something similar. Maybe these are new but worthwhile. These couple can go on the back burner.’ It was a natural process that takes place.”

Also over the weekend, former LSU cornerback Kristian Fulton, a second-choice of the Tennessee Titans, signed his contract.

Here’s a look who’s signed and their contract details and who hasn’t from the 2019 national champions. So far, the 12 players who have agreed to or signed contracts have a combined guaranteed signing bonus money total of $57,962,228.
