The #Bengals are giving RB Joe Mixon a 4-year deal worth $48M, source said. A nice payday for their feature back, who is now under contract for 5 years.

That’s right Branders we just locked down the best running back in the game for 5 more years! That’s 5 more years of making Pittsburgh linebackers look like amateurs. 5 more years of barreling over Cleveland DB’s. And 5 more years of making the playoffs!
Unless of course the Bengals don’t make changes with the offensive line. That’s been our biggest problem for what feels like 100 years now and it’s been so frustrating to see the o line give up like a dog wanting to get its belly rubbed.
Homer take aside I am glad Mixon is getting paid and I think it’s a great step forward for the Zac Taylor era. Burrow and Mixon together along with Tee Higgins will hopefully become a threat that cannot be stopped in the AFC North for the foreseeable future.
Also Mixon do the right thing and buy Skyline Chili now that you’re stupid rich.
