Don't worry over there in Cincinnati, Bengals fans. Joe Burrow has no plans of pulling an Eli Manning, as many of you have feared for months now.

With rumors consistently swirling that the expected No. 1 pick in the draft would leave the Bengals at the altar if they indeed selected him first in late April, Burrow has come out and made it clear he'll be ready to ball out for the team.

While he isn't exactly singing the praises of the Bengals organization here, Burrow is straight and to the point. It doesn't matter to him where he ends up. All that's important to him is getting his shot to compete at the next level, and proving people wrong who think his small hands may be a concern.

He won't be doing that this week at the NFL Combine, though, because he's decided not to partake in any of the on-field drills, like many top QBs before him.

Burrow's time to shine will come soon enough. If it ends up being in Cincinnati, you'd better believe he'll be ready to go.
