"Joe Burrow's an awesome guy. Tough, smart, I see a lot of that in Justin [Fields]. They just come out to work every day. They're good guys, good humans, study. They take control of it. Joe really took control of our offense last year. And I see that in Justin so far too."

Reiff finished his media day by mentioning the young players on the Chicago Bears offensive line. When asked about Teven Jenkins, Larry Borom, and Braxton Jones, Reiff described them as 'real athletic'.

"They're athletic, real athletic. They're gonna become seasoned, obviously, it takes time. Especially nowadays in the NFL... They're good, man. All are very smart, and very athletic. They're gonna be good players."

Reiff is joining his third team in the NFC North: the Chicago Bears. He spent the first nine years of his career with Detroit and Minnesota, so he knows how tough this division can be. He's been around long enough and has blocked for several high-caliber quarterbacks.

Comparing Justin Fields to Joe Burrow is a good sign and Riley Reiff clearly knows what it takes to succeed in the NFL.
