Former Bengals receiver Chad Johnson tells Joe Burrow to eat at McDonald’s
For months, it has seemed like an inevitability that the Cincinnati Bengals are going to select Joe Burrow with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. With Burrow likely headed to Cincinnati, Chad Johnson gave him some useful advice to eat at McDonald’s.

If you’re someone that follows Johnson on Twitter, you would know that McDonald’s is a crucial part of his everyday life. Therefore, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that he wants Burrow to have the same routine.
In his final season at LSU, Burrow completed 76.3 percent of his passes for 5,671 yards, 60 touchdowns, and six interceptions. The confident signal-caller also showed off his running ability by rushing for 368 yards and another five scores.
Without a doubt, Burrow had arguably the best season for a collegiate quarterback in history. As Johnson said in the video, it’s almost common sense at this point that Burrow is going to the Bengals.
When Johnson played for the Bengals, he was one of the most energetic wide receivers in the NFL. The retired wideout definitely would have loved to play alongside Burrow in Cincinnati’s new offense under Zac Taylor.
Of course, for a rookie quarterback, one of the first steps after being drafted is embracing the city. Again, with Burrow being an Ohio native, that shouldn’t be much of a problem.
However, it remains to be seen if Burrow takes Johnson’s life advice to heart. If he does, maybe Burrow can strike an endorsement deal with the popular food chain in the near future.
