Joe Burrow: Don’t compare me to Tom Brady

Joe Burrow has been compared to Tom Brady by many (for reasons we can’t understand), but he’s very much against it.

Burrow appeared live on NFL Network Friday for a fun segment on the field before the second day of workouts took place at the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine. Then the Brady comparison came up, and his reaction really said it all.

“Please don’t…Please don’t compare me to the best player of all time,” Burrow said. “Let me do my own thing. Don’t do that to me, please.”

Burrow has been acing all his pre-draft checkpoints. He’s reportedly been impressive at the combine during meetings with teams, and he absolutely nailed the response to the Brady comparison.

Barring a legendary trade offer to the Cincinnati Bengals, it’s looking like a lock that Burrow will be the first overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
