One of the most entertaining players on the Cincinnati Bengals‘ roster is tight end, C.J. Uzomah. The former fifth-round pick out of Auburn is always giving us stuff to write and talk about whether it’s proclaiming the Bengals are indeed a Super Bowl contender before anyone had bought in or telling us about his pre-game ritual.

Uzomah is back at it once again with the stories.

Dan Hoard, the radio voice of the Bengals, spoke with Uzomah this week who shared a pretty funny story about his quarterback, Joe Burrow.

According to Hoard, Uzomah wanted to text Burrow something but when he went to search for “Burrow” in his phone, nothing came up. He then had to remind himself that he has Burrow listed as “Joey Franchise” in his address book. Uzomah was the one who told us about the Joey Franchise nickname so this makes perfect sense.

Uzomah told us about the Burrow nickname back in October and that was before the former No. 1 overall pick started putting up the kind of numbers he has been in recent weeks. The Bengals were still “just a cute story” at that point in time but now, here they are, winners of the AFC North and slated to host their first playoff game since Uzomah’s rookie season.

C.J. Uzomah never disappoints when it comes to his stories and the ones that center around Joe Burrow are definitely the most entertaining. Hopefully, he returns to Cincinnati in 2022 and beyond.
