We now have our first look at Joe Burrow working out with new Bengals teammates.
This week, rookies and injured players began reporting to their respective teams for the start of training camp, which beings next week.
Among the Bengals who made it to Cincinnati was Burrow, who was seen working out with Bengals tight end Drew Sample and defensive end Sam Hubbard.

Burrow and Hubbard were teammates when both played at Ohio State. Earlier this offseason Hubbard admitted he was campaigning hard for the Bengals to draft Burrow.
“One of the best leaders I’ve ever been around,” Hubbard told Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com. “Great guy. Love the way he carries himself. I’ve got a lot of respect for him. Believe me, I’ll vouch for his character. I’m campaigning hard.”
The Bengals actually used that connection to get the scoop on Burrow before ultimately making him the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s draft.
