CINCINNATI (FOX19) - No. 1 overall pick Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals have agreed in principle to a contract, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The agreed-upon contract is for $36.1 million, Schefter wrote on Twitter.

This contract is still dependent on a physical, which Burrow will take sometime later this week, Schefter reports.

Burrow’s deal will give him 100% of his $23.88 million signing bonus from Cincinnati within 15 days of executing his contract, says Schefter.
