Joe Burrow is now in Cincinnati working out with his new Bengals teammates. However, it’s not the first time he’s had a chance to train with guys he’ll be playing with on Sundays.

According to Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer, Burrow has worked out with Bengals wide receiver John Ross this offseason.

Ross made a very smart move training with his new quarterback in what will be a contract year for the fourth-year receiver. You could argue he’s the player who needed a full offseason with Burrow the most, being that Ross is in line for his first big NFL payday next year if he has a big season with Burrow under center.

It’s also good to know Burrow got a chance to train with someone he’ll be throwing a lot of passes to this coming season. You would have liked to see him get a chance to train with all of his new receivers, but the coronavirus effectively wiped out offseason workouts and made it hard for him to train with anyone.

It also looks like Ross has made it to Cincinnati, where Burrow reported last week, so the two may be getting more work in before camp opens later this week.

Hopefully, that extra work Burrow and Ross had together will pay dividends when the 2020 season begins in just over a month.
