Orlando Brown and Joe Burrow linked up over cheeseburgers

Cincinnati Bengals offensive tackle Orlando Brown first met his new quarterback Joe Burrow in New York and the two had cheeseburgers.

Speaking with reporters in Cincinnati after inking his deal with the Bengals, Brown talked about the meeting and his impression of Burrow.

“He’s fired up, like I was,” Brown said, according to ESPN’s Ben Baby. “You can tell right away why he’s had the success he’s had.”

It’s high praise from Brown, who has now blocked for Lamar Jackson, Patrick Mahomes and now Burrow.

The story isn’t as funny as that time La’el Collins had cupcakes with Burrow before signing with the team, but it’s nice for fans to hear when and how the new left tackle met the star quarterback.
