The Cincinnati Bengals could go out and acquire Las Vegas Raiders’ offensive tackle Jermaine Eluemunor, who is also going to be a free agent and has recently heaped praise on their franchise quarterback.
This season, the PFF has given Jermaine Eluemunor a 68.5 overall grade, a 71.5 run-blocking grade, and a 64.4 pass-blocking grade, and he only allowed 28 pressures (six sacks), making him one of the key players that the Las Vegas Raiders will have to decide on this offseason.
What did Jermaine Eluemunor say about Joe Burrow?
Earlier this season, NFL fans threw shade on Joe Burrow, saying that he is just a “system quarterback” for the Cincinnati Bengals, and Eluemunor is having none of it.
“Look, y’all, don’t take this the wrong way, lol. For some reason, I keep seeing Burrow slander on my TL. People keep hating when honestly, Burrow and Mahomes are the best QBs in the NFL,” said Eluemunor via his X (formerly known as Twitter) account on Wednesday.
“Also, he completely turned that franchise around, but I guess when you’re nice AF people forget about the bad times! Also, the whole system QB thing is stupid, stop it,” he concluded.
For sure, a lot of people would agree with Jermaine Eluemunor’s assessment of Joe Burrow, especially since many already believe that he is the only worthy rival to Patrick Mahomes.
Jermaine Eluemunor has a deeper reason why he wants to join forces with Joe Burrow
Jermaine Eluemunor is not a fan of the Kansas City Chiefs, and he probably believes that joining the Cincinnati Bengals gives him the best opportunity to beat them “when it counts,” hence why he has been buttering Joe Burrow up recently.
“You can call me a hater, but I don’t like the Chiefs at all,” tweeted Eluemunor. “We beat them this year; yeah, cool, but I want to beat them when it matters.”
As it stands, Joe Burrow is the only active quarterback who has defeated Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs in the NFL playoffs. And with his animosity towards Kansas City, playing a position of need could pave the way for Jermaine Eluemunor to get his wish this summer.
