Joe Burrow still struggling to adjust to fame and fandom that follows with being an NFL QB
While some love the limelight that comes with being an NFL superstar, some shy away from it. In a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow revealed that the constant attention is something that he's still getting used to:
"You feel like a zoo animal sometimes when people are just looking at you and taking pictures; it’s all very weird."
The quarterback went on to note that while he doesn't mind signing autographs and taking selfies, it's certainly something he won't get used to anytime soon:
"I meet (new) people, and they’re freaking out or something. But I’m just me. And everyone I grew up with is super weirded out by it, too."
Burrow became a household name in the league for guiding his side to a Super Bowl appearance last season, his second year as a starter.
