Due to the COVID-19 circumstances, Burrow spent most of the offseason in his parents’ basement, performing virtual walk-through zoom sessions with the Bengals. His NFL debut is scheduled to be on Sept. 13 in Cincinnati against the Chargers.
“My dad likes to make the joke that I’m a 23-year-old millionaire living in my parents basement,” Burrow said jokingly in May. “It hits close to home.”
