But while the franchise’s young face has proven himself on the grill so far, he’s also become a bit of a celebrity off the court with his fiery social media comments and unique fashion sense.
Here’s a look back at some of Burrow’s most memorable outfits since becoming a Bengal.
After the Bengals defeated the Raiders in an AFC wildcard matchup to end a 31-year playoff drought that kept the fan base captive in misery, Burrow descended on the press conference of post-game with a swagger that blew up social media. Wearing Cartier sunglasses, commonly known as “Buffs”, a popular name in Detroit’s hip-hop scene, Burrow was asked if there was any “meaning” to his glasses after the big win.
“Oh, no,” he replied with a laugh, “I just think they’re pretty cool, what do you think?”

My cause, my cleats
Without a doubt, Burrow’s most impactful fashion statement was in the form of a pair of cleats he wore against the Los Angeles Chargers earlier this season. While wearing special cleats for an NFL game is nothing new, the story behind Burrow’s shoe choice carries a lot of weight.
Burrow first drew attention to some of the food insecurity issues many people face in his hometown of Athens County during his Heisman Trophy speech in 2019. Since then, he has spurred other people to create a Facebook page that raised $350,000 leading to Joe Burrow Hunger Relief. Funds.
Burrow’s cleats against the Chargers were orange and green and read “Foundation for Appalachian Ohio” on one side and “Athens County Food Pantry” on the other, with “Joe Burrow Hunger Relief Fund” on the back.

Ahead of a Week 11 showdown with the Washington Football Team during his rookie season, Burrow, who wore a custom suit to every game, tapped Hellman Retail Group, a high-end menswear store from downtown, to put his lifelong affinity with SpongeBob SquarePants into pre-game shape.

Burrow wore custom costumes with SpongeBob accessories for several games and previously explained why he loves the Nickelodeon show so much.
“I was scared of everything growing up,” he said. “I still don’t like horror movies, I don’t like haunted houses or anything like that. I couldn’t watch ‘Harry Potter’, ‘Lord of the Rings’, ‘House’. I was strictly Spongebob, Disney Channel, a little Nickelodeon.”
‘Bengals by 30 based on this and that alone’
Ahead of a pivotal game with the Chiefs that would clinch an AFC North title and a playoff appearance for the Bengals, Burrow was photographed in a casual look with a t-shirt featuring photos of his top three wide receivers, Ja ‘Marr Chase, Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins.
