LSU quarterback Joe Burrow set for big National Football League payday: Here's how much

Burrow's amateur career culminated in an a spectacular performance Monday night, leading his Tigers to the national championship over Clemson.

In fact, the Eagles could even see Burrow early on in his National Football League career since the Bengals are scheduled to come to town in 2020 for a home battle, but at least this would still be better than seeing him twice a year as a division opponent.

Merchandise featuring Ohio-born QB Joe Burrow has hit the shelves in his home state less than 24 hours after the Tigers claimed their national title.

A strong contingent of LSU fans have settled in OH since Burrow left OSU in 2018.

Quarterback Burrow finished 31 of 49 for 463 yards and five touchdowns as well as running one in himself to help his side to a 42-25 win over Clemson and, in the process, cap a remarkable individual season.

Earth had its hottest decade on record in 2010s
Several scientists said the coming years will be even hotter, knocking these years out of the record books. And 2016 still remains the hottest year ever recorded, with some help from the El Nino weather phenomenon.

As for the Bengals, they were outscored by an average of nine points per game during a 2-14 season.

Even if the Bengals could still make out well by going with arguably the top defender from this year's draft class in Ohio State's Chase Young, it would be heartbreaking to watch Burrow go on to become a stud in the National Football League, and Cincinnati live with regret over their decision. After yesterday's blazing performance, Burrow finished his fifth-year senior season with almost 5,700 yards passing, 60 touchdowns, and just six interceptions; he completed an eye popping 76 percent of his passes and finished with a quarterback rating of 202.

The possibility of endorsement deals, which were forbidden for college players during Burrow's time at LSU, will vastly increase his earning potential at the professional level.

By Tuesday afternoon, shirts featuring Burrow smoking his post-game cigar were already popping up in Cincinnati.
