Calais Campbell looks forward to being “properly acquainted” with Bengals new QB Joe Burrow

I never want to be properly acquainted with Campbell

The Cincinnati Bengals and the NFL took their sweet time in beginning the NFL Draft but after a long, long time, the already known first overall pick was official. The Bengals picked LSU quarterback Joe Burrow.

He wasn’t only welcomed by Bengals fans as a particular Baltimore Raven also welcomed him to the NFL. Calais Campbell, now a Baltimore Raven after being traded from the Jacksonville Jaguars for a fifth-round pick, congratulated the quarterback.

While I, personally, am looking forward to training camp and possibly landing an interview with Calais Campbell, I never, ever, EVER, want to be properly acquainted with the 6-foot, 8-inch 300 pound defensive end. And though I’m sure Burrow is looking forward to competing in 2020, I’m confident he shares my feelings of never being properly acquainted with the man who has racked up 88.0 sacks and 201 total quarterback hits in his nine-year NFL career.
