Joe Burrow won’t be throwing or working out at the NFL Combine, and that is him using his leverage.

Joe Burrow cleared up the ridiculous notion that he wouldn’t play for the Bengals on Tuesday morning, and soon after he confirmed that he wouldn’t be throwing or working out at the NFL Combine either.

He throws out the idea of him not throwing in the middle of him clearing up any confusion over his “leverage” comment. A very casual “Just so everyone knows, I’m not going to throw. I’m not going to workout.”

Had the national media been listening to the context of Burrow’s “leverage” they’d know he meant that he felt so confident in his draft stock that he wouldn’t have to waste time this offseason working on NFL Combine drills or scripting a Pro Day. Things of that nature that usually take up most of a draft prospect’s time in an offseason are things he doesn’t have to waste time on. Instead he has been working on just getting ready for the NFL and refining his game.
