The Bengals and Joe Mixon reportedly agreed to a four-year extension worth $48 million.

Joe Mixon, as well as many athletes across sports, like to have fun with their Twitter followers by tweeting out cryptic messages on occasion.

Mixon has been doing it a lot more this summer as he continues to work out a long-term extension with the Bengals. The latest is him in a happy mood with the Blackburns in the Bengals front office, as if they were celebrating a big event.

Oh, and Mixon just made his return to practice after sitting out with ‘migraines.’

Is this all one big coincidence, or is Mixon about to sign what may end up being the biggest NFL contract he’ll ever get?

Who knows. But one thing is for sure. Mixon is going to be one of the team’s most important players this coming season. Hopefully, that ends up being the case for the foreseeable future if/when a contract extension is agreed upon.

Who Dey!
