ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that former LSU quarterback Joe Burrow has agreed to a $36.1 million dollar contract with the Cincinnati Bengals.

The former Heisman Trophy winner and No. 1 overall pick will reportedly receive 100% of his $23.88 million signing bonus within 15 days of executing his contract.

Per The Advocate:

Burrow's rookie deal is one of the most lucrative in LSU history. Former quarterback JaMarcus Russell signed a $61 million contract with the Oakland Raiders as the No. 1 overall pick in 2007. Since former Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford's $76 million deal in 2010 as the St. Louis Rams' top pick, rookie deals drastically dropped after the 2011 collective bargaining agreement.

The 6-foot-4, 221-pound Burrow still has the biggest rookie contract since 2011, topping former Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray's $35.2 million deal with the Arizona Cardinals last year.

Burrow is a FORMER Heisman award winner? Wrong. Five years from now, fifty years from now, he will still be a Heisman Trophy winner. Congratulations, Joe.

Good for him! Smart contract too... getting 100% of the signing bonus up front is huge.

IF, that is, he has a good financial planner making sure he doesn't lose 40% immediately to taxes.
