Leigh Steinberg is one of the best agents in the business, and he’s looking out for the future of his client, Alabama Crimson Tide product Tua Tagovailoa. Specifically, he made it clear on Thursday that he does not want Tagovailoa to not go do the Cincinnati Bengals.

Steinberg was asked if he wants Tagovailoa going No. 1 overall. His response was a direct shot at the Bengals, who own that pick: “You want to make sure that your client ends up with a good organization….I’m hoping Cincy falls in love with Joe Burrow,” Steinberg said, speaking with 97.3 ESPN FM.

Utterly savage swipe at an organization that has been awful for decades now.

For what it’s worth, the Bengals appear to be high on Burrow with the top pick. And based on how their fans are talking about the 2020 NFL Draft, they’d better take him or trouble will ensue.
