Former NFL player Jack Brewer discusses the massive payouts college bowl sponsors bring to the game.

Moxy, poise, confidence. Louisiana State quarterback Joe Burrow has put these three traits on display all season long, and capped off his Heisman Trophy winning season with a National Championship.

NFL rookie contracts are pre-determined by a scale tied to the league's salary cap for the upcoming season.

Even if the Bengals could still make out well by going with arguably the top defender from this year's draft class in Ohio State's Chase Young, it would be heartbreaking to watch Burrow go on to become a stud in the National Football League, and Cincinnati live with regret over their decision.

The Niners will host the NFC championship game next week against the victor of Sunday's game between Seattle and Green Bay. A 49ers-Chiefs matchup would be solid, as well, but likely wouldn't receive the overall hype that Packers-Chiefs would.

The top pick in the 2019 NFL Draft received a four-year contract worth an estimated $35 million, including a $23.4 million signing bonus.

Ever since the Cincinnati Bengals clinched the top overall pick in April's draft following a two-win season in 2019, the speculation has been the team will pave the way for Burrow, and move on from Andy Dalton at some point. Burrow crushed the final few records he didn't own, accumulating over 500 yards and six total touchdowns. He finished the game with 463 yards through the air and five touchdowns, completing over 63 percent of his passes in the meantime; the athletic Burrow added another 58 yards and an additional touchdown on the ground as well.

The Cincinnati Bengals were given a thrilling preview of what could be to come as Joe Burrow led LSU to the College National Championship title on Monday night.
