Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow was off to a solid start to his rookie campaign during the 2020 NFL season. Of course, his year came to a crashing halt after his devastating knee injury. But Burrow is now in the midst of rehab and was even seen recently putting in work at Bengals OTAs.

The young QB is focused on fixing one of his biggest weaknesses from last season while he works his way back to 100%.

Burrow admitted that he was disappointed with the accuracy on his deep throws in 2020. He knows he can hit on those passes, like he did at LSU with Ja'Marr Chase, and wants to get back to that level of play.

It's inspiring that Burrow is committed to improving his game when some players would just be happy to get back on the field after his kind of injury. The QB's awareness of how he underperformed in the deep ball (just 9-of-48 on throws of 20-plus yards in 2020) is encouraging and could yield big results in 2021.

If Burrow can get that part of his game back on track, the QB could be in for a massive sophomore season throwing to the likes of Tyler Boyd, Tee Higgins and Chase.
