While aspiring football players long for the chance to play in the NFL, it's no secret that some would rather play in certain cities than others. Whether it's the weather, nightlife or neighborhoods, some locations are simply more attractive to players than others.

When former LSU Tigers wideout Ja'Marr Chase was selected fifth overall by the Cincinnati Bengals at the 2021 NFL Draft, he had some hesitations about the city he was heading to. However, after getting to know and see the city of Cincinnati, Chase has admitted that he was wrong about it.

Chase said that Cincinnati isn't what he thought it'd be, so he's enjoying his time there so far. It's not unusual for people to talk bad about locations in Ohio, but that also usually comes from an uninformed opinion. If anything, Bengals fans should be thrilled that Chase admitted he was wrong.

Chase will be reunited in Cincinnati with his former LSU signal-caller Joe Burrow. Through the two seasons that they played together, Chase caught 107 receptions for 2,093 yards and 23 touchdowns in 24 games. If he and Burrow can rekindle that fire and put up numbers that are even half as good, the Bengals fans should feel pretty optimistic.

Chase currently has the best odds out of any wideout to win next season's Offensive Rookie of the Year Award, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. His +1500 odds put him in a tie for seventh overall, which means plenty of football fans will be watching to see what he and Burrow do together in 2021.
