Cincinnati Bengals rookie quarterback Joe burrow just received an amazing welcome gift to the NFL … a diamond chain of his jersey number !!
TMZ Sports learned … the Heisman Trophy winner wanted to do something special after signing his massive $ 36 million rookie deal, so he contacted a famous jeweler Leo frost to prepare the one-of-a-kind piece.
We’re told the awesome # 9 pendant is made of 18k white gold and VVS diamonds … sitting on an 18k white gold Cuban chain set with VVS diamonds.
In other words, the tower tastes great !!
For those who have paid special attention to our draft jewelry overview in February, that should come as no surprise. As Leo told Burrow at the time, “After the draft I think we’ll make that a big piece of ass for you, # 9? A big # 9.”
Leo kept his promise … fly to Cincinnati this week to deliver the final product … and Joe loved it !!
It’s been a crazy year for the boy from Ohio – he won a natty, won the Heisman, helped raise $ 500,000 for his hometown food bank, and went first in the draft.
