Bengals made sure to have Joe Burrow deal leak during Chiefs vs. Lions
Lastly, the Joe Burrow deal is finished.
Given the circumstances, you have to surprise how lengthy mentioned deal has really been performed.
Permit me to clarify.
Coming into Thursday, the expectation was that the Cincinnati Bengals and QB1 would hammer out an extension earlier than Sunday’s kickoff with the Cleveland Browns.
Fortunately, that occurred, and the timing of the deal being introduced is curious, to say the least.
That’s as a result of the deal, initially reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, was damaged proper because the Kansas Metropolis Chiefs kicked off the 2023 NFL season vs. the Detroit Lions.
In case you missed the earlier two NFL seasons, Bengals vs. Chiefs has develop into the NFL’s premiere rivalry, highlighted by two straight AFC Championship thrillers, so it feels just a little too coincidental that the Burrow deal was introduced whereas the Chiefs had been the main target of the sports activities world ¯_(ツ)_/¯
Week 17, Sunday, December thirty first at 4:25 pm ET on CBS. You may wanna mark that one down.
