No. 1 NFL Draft pick Joe Burrow landed a huge rookie contract Tuesday, signing a fully-guaranteed $36.1 million contract with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Joe's father, Jimmy Burrow, was on 104.5's "Off the Bench" this week and had a funny comment about his son's new deal. Per The Advocate:

"We finally got him outta our basement," Jimmy Burrow joked.

The QB's dad said like any contract in any business, there were negotiations to be made before Joe put pen to paper.

"It was a process," he said. "There was language that needed to be ironed out. As a parent, you get a little nervous when it isn't a done deal."

He said once the principle of the contact was finally agreed upon, it made everyone "feel real good."

"Robin and I are happy. Joe's happy. He's just glad to get that part behind him."

That last pic is what every dad wants. To be that proud of your boy, that's what it's all about.

I hope my son can be that much taller than me. If he isn’t then kicker or punter is his best hope!
