Not that there’s been much doubt that the Bengals would select Joe Burrow with the first overall pick in the draft, but for Burrow, there’s no suspense at all: He knows he’s Cincinnati’s man.

Bengals owner Mike Brown has informed Burrow that he’ll be tonight’s first overall pick, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

According to the report, Brown sent Burrow a letter that welcomed him to Cincinnati and said he’s looking forward “to building championship football teams with you for many years to come.”

Brown also sent Burrow and his parents No. 9 Bengals jerseys, which they’ll put on tonight and wear, Brown hopes, for years to come.

  1. Championship football teams? In Cincinnati? Under Paul Brown that was true. Under Mike Brown it’s been far from the truth.

  2. Mitch Trubisky 2.0 and you didn’t even need to trade up a spot.

    One Nation, Raider nation. and GO Lions! ROAR!

  3. Thank God! Now stay where you are ‘Fins and get your QB or one of the stud OTs.

  4. Remember when Carson Palmer threw 4 ints and had 2 fumble in NFC championship and Andy Dalton came in and led the Bengals to 5 straight playoff appearances.

    Excellent! Bengal’s fans can expect a QB with a winning record and a division title after his first 3 seasons.

    What have the Raiders and Lions done lately again?!?

    Yes but he lost all of them.

  7. All the Bengals need now is a TE, a WR, a defensive secondary, a new offensive line and a magic genie lamp and they will be good to go.

    The Bengals have objectively been better than both the Lions and Raiders over the last 15+ years. This isn’t debatable.
