Over at CBS Sports, Bryan DeArdo was tasked with identifying each team’s most likely future Hall of Famer.
Bengals fans get one guess as to who made the cut. Joe Burrow:
“The 2020 No. 1 overall realized his potential last season, when he led the Bengals to the franchise’s third Super Bowl. Burrow also won Comeback Player of the Year while pacing the NFL in completion percentage.”
Burrow’s easily the safest bet on the roster after his showings over his first two years and his obvious potential for quite a bit more.
That said, it’s interesting to think about other potential candidates on the roster. If Ja’Marr Chase can keep in the same statistical range for a long time, he’s a shoo-in. A host of other young, budding talent could continue to blossom and make this an even more interesting conversation in future years.
But for now? Like everything else Bengals, it’s all about Burrow.
