“This is where I want to be my whole career,” Burrow told reporters on Wednesday. “You’ve seen what the front office has done and what (coach) Zac (Taylor) has done in their time here. I’m a small part of that. I’m excited to be a part of that. And we have great people in the locker room that grind every day, that are excited to go and showcase their talents and excited to go and do it in the city of Cincinnati.”

The 26-year-old was the team’s No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Since then, he has been selected to one Pro Bowl and was the 2021 AP Comeback Player of the Year.

Burrow is entering his fourth season with the team in 2023. He has turned the once-horrible Bengals team around into a prominent contender.
