Momma didn't raise no fool.

No. 1 overall draft pick Joe Burrow told reporters that he won't be spending any of his contract money anytime soon.

The $36 million contract he signed with the Cincinnati Bengals is going to sit in his bank account.

Burrow plans to live solely on the money he receives from his endorsements.

From The Score:

No. 1 overall pick Joe Burrow won't be satisfying a guilty pleasure with any of the money he secured Friday by officially signing his rookie deal with the Cincinnati Bengals.

"I don't plan on spending any contract money," the quarterback told reporters. "I'm just gonna live off the marketing money and let that accrue in my bank account."

As the first pick in the 2020 draft, Burrow obtained a fully guaranteed four-year contract for $36.19 million, which included a signing bonus of $23.9 million.

Interest is a mother fucker.  Letting his millions sit in the bank is going to setup generations for a decent living.

It almost makes living in Cincinnati and playing for the Bengals worth it.
