Joe Burrow‘s NFL career might be over before it even began … and it’s all because of his small mitts!!!
Of course, the Heisman winner and projected #1 overall pick’s small paw dilemma was revealed prior to the NFL combine this week … with his hand measuring 9 inches from thumb to pinky — which would tie for the smallest QB hands since 2008.
Now, the tiny hands didn’t stop Burrow from leading the LSU Tigers to a perfect season and posting some of the best QB numbers the sport has ever seen … but people like to freak out over this kinda stuff.
Burrow decided to break his silence over the reports on Monday … and he faced the music with some good, old-fashioned comedy gold!!!
“Considering retirement after I was informed the football will be slipping out of my tiny hands. Please keep me in your thoughts,” Burrow tweeted.
Great response from the young fella … after all, the whole storyline seems a bit trite at this point when Kyler Murray‘s 9.5-inch hands did just fine last season.
