Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow is on verge of getting PAID when he signs a long-term contract with Cincinnati.

Burrow has currently earned over $30 million in his first three seasons but Spotrac estimates Joe’s market value is $53.7 million/year. With Burrow set to become a free agent in 2025, the Bengals will likely tie up those loose ends asap.

What does Joe Burrow do with all of his money?

During a recent appearance on The Mental Game Podcast, Joe Burrow’s father revealed how Joe Burrow’s charitable foundation chooses to spend its money. In doing so, he revealed that Joey B really is that dude.

Jim Burrow tells the story about how Joe was given a list of 20 families receiving mental health treatment at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. The plan was to narrow the list down and pay some medical bills.

In the process, Joe realized they were all worth recipients and instead of narrowing down the list he opted to pay the medical bills for all 20 families receiving mental health treatment.

Jim Burrow said “The families had trouble paying the bills, so we started out thinking ‘Well, how many can we pay?'” There were about 20 of them and we couldn’t decide (who to help), so we basically paid for 20 families’ mental health bills.”
