Joe Mixon Reacts to Getting 4-Year Deal Worth $48 Million With Cincinnati Bengals

Joe Mixon Cincinnati Bengals

Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon reportedly signed an extension with the team on Tuesday.

The deal is over four years and worth a reported $48 million. It keeps Mixon with the team for the next five seasons.

The University of Oklahoma product reacted to his new deal on Twitter.

The Bengals drafted Mixon in the second round (48th overall) of the 2017 NFL Draft.

The 24-year-old has rushed for over 1,000 yards in back-to-back seasons.

Last year, Mixon was terrific, carrying the ball 278 times for 1,137 yards and five touchdowns despite the fact that Cincinnati was the worst team in the NFL. He also added 35 catches for 287 yards and another three touchdowns.

The Bengals look to have a nice young core on offense after drafting quarterback Joe Burrow with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Burrow will now have Mixon, Tyler Boyd, A.J. Green and rookie Tee Higgins at his disposal this season, and he and Mixon are now paired in Cincinnati for the long haul.
