The Cincinnati Bengals have decided to exercise their fifth-year option for quarterback Joe Burrow, keeping him with the team through the 2024 season. Burrow was the number one overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft and is considered a key part of the team’s future success. This option is worth $36.1 million and gives the Bengals more time to work out a long-term contract with the young quarterback. With Burrow under contract for at least the next few years, the Bengals can focus on building a strong team around him and making a push for the playoffs in the near future.
