Burrow's primary sources of income include his NFL salary, lucrative endorsements, business ventures, and additional earnings from appearances, social media posts, licensing, memorabilia, and bonuses.

Burrow's journey on the field has been nothing short of extraordinary since he was selected first overall in the 2020 NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals. Despite facing challenges, including a season-ending knee injury in his debut year, he performed quite well. Returning in 2021, he led the Bengals to victory, winning the AFC North and earning distinctions like AFC Offensive Player of the Week. The playoffs marked a historic moment, ending the Bengals' three-decade postseason win drought.

In 2022, Burrow's record-breaking performances earned him another Pro Bowl selection, but he got injured again before the 2023 season. On November 16, he ended up with a torn ligament in his right wrist during the Bengals' Week 11 game against the Ravens, leading to his announcement to miss the remainder of the season. He is currently on a break and is undergoing surgery.
