LSU quarterback Joe Burrow doesn't appear to have any reservations about playing for the Cincinnati Bengals, Ben Baby of ESPN reports.

Jimmy Burrow, the father of the Heisman Trophy winner, told Montreal's TSN 690 radio on Thursday that his son has no qualms about wearing orange and black if the Bengals take Joe with the top overall pick in the NFL draft.

"He's excited to even be in that conversation and if the Bengals do draft him, he's going to be happy," Jimmy Burrow told the Canadian radio affiliate.

The younger Burrow, who led LSU to an undefeated season capped by a victory in Monday's College Football Playoff National Championship, has plenty of experience playing football in Ohio. Joe Burrow played high school ball at Athens High School, which is less than 160 miles east of downtown Cincinnati. Burrow spent three seasons at Ohio State before he transferred to LSU for his final two years of college.

Jimmy Burrow, who had a five-year career in the Canadian Football League, was a longtime assistant at Ohio University in Athens, where he was defensive coordinator from 2005 until his retirement after the 2018 season.
