- NFL rookie contracts are pre-determined by a scale tied to the league’s salary cap for the upcoming season. While the 2020 salary cap has yet to be finalized, the contract signed by Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray, the first overall pick in last year’s draft, provides a glimpse at what Burrow can expect to earn.
- Burrow, who completed his master’s degree at LSU in December, is considered a virtual lock to be the first overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. The Cincinnati Bengals hold the first pick and are in the market for a franchise quarterback after a dismal 2-14 season.
- 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.
