Many people in the media have suggested that Joe Burrow should refuse to play for the Cincinnati Bengals and that the Miami Dolphins would be a better destination for him. This is a false narrative for a number of reasons.
It is officially April, which means the month of the NFL Draft is upon us. The Cincinnati Bengals are on the clock with the first overall pick and anyone who has kept up to date knows that they will almost certainly take LSU quarterback Joe Burrow.
However, a false narrative has presented itself in the media. Many talking heads in the sports media world have called for Burrow to refuse to play for the Bengals, claiming that the organization is too dysfunctional and that his career would be ruined if he were to play for them.
The people calling for Burrow to say no to the Bengals are propping up the Miami Dolphins as a better option. The problem is, there is no logical reason to believe the Dolphins are a more functional organization than the Bengals. On the contrary, there are actually multiple reasons to believe the Bengals are the better of the two franchises. Let’s dive into three of those reasons.
