Heisman winner Joe Burrow says he already know how he’s going to spend the first paycheck  he received from an NFL team later this year.

The 23-year-old, who completed 76.3 percent of his passes for 5,671 yards with 60 touchdowns and six interceptions across 15 games during his final collegiate season while leading LSU to a national championship, doesn’t want to buy a car or a house or an expensive watch. What he does want? A personal chef.

“I’m a healthy eater, so whatever he or she can make that tastes good and keeps me shredded,” Burrow told TMZ Sports.

While not that sexy, investing in his body reflects a trend practiced by many top athletes, including LeBron James and Tom Brady, who spend millions to make sure they are in the best shape possible every year. So along with shelling out for luxuries like a physical therapist, masseuse and nutritionist, a personal chef makes a lot of sense.

Burrow, who is expected to go first overall to the Cincinnati Bengals in April’s draft, also told TMZ that he eats steak and likes it served up medium rare with a side of asparagus or lobster macaroni and cheese.

Burrow also said he takes his steak with no sauce, A1 or otherwise. That makes at least one trait where the future NFL player is already well ahead of Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes, who infamously takes his steak with a large dollop of ketchup.
