CINCINNATI – Cincinnati Bengals rookie quarterback Joe Burrow has a shiny new addition to his jewelry collection.
The first pick in the NFL Draft in April recently bought a gold necklace made by Houston jeweler Leo Frost. Frost was in Cincinnati this weekend to deliver the chain to Burrow.
According to Frost, the chain is an 18k white gold diamond cuban link with an 18k white gold # 9 pendant, which is Burrow’s jersey number. The Houston jeweler declined to say the exact cost, but estimated the piece to be worth $ 25,000 to $ 30,000.
“He really loves jewelry,” Frost told ESPN. “He likes the way he looks.”

Burrow’s chain is a larger version of the one he received earlier this year, which Frost also delivered. Louisiana rapper Boosie Badazz ordered a channel for Burrow after the quarterback led LSU to a national championship and won a Heisman Trophy.
In a video posted to Frost’s Instagram, a masked terrier meets Frost to receive the channel.
“It’s cool,” Burrow said in the video as he picked up the chain.
Burrow isn’t the only football player to do business with Frost. Other clients include former LSU teammates Ja’Marr Chase and Kary Vincent Jr., Titans defensive back Kenny Vaccaro and Giants offensive tackle Andrew Thomas, the fourth overall pick in the 2020 Draft.
When Burrow signed his rookie deal, a four-year contract worth $ 36 million, he received a signing bonus of $ 23.9 million, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. In July, Burrow said he had no intention of spending any contract money during his career.
“I’m just going to live on the marketing money and let it pile up in my bank account,” Burrow said.
This offseason, Burrow has partnered with the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio to support a food bank named in his honor. Burrow spoke about hunger relief in Southeast Ohio, where he grew up.
