Judging by fan reactions, the Bengals did a good today.

In the last three years, the Bengals have been able to retain four core players with contract extensions during the final portion of each offseason. Joe Mixon is the latest and maybe the most controversial depending on who you ask.

For most of Bengals Twitter, and football Twitter as well, Mixon’s reported four-year, $48 million deal is universally adored. The Bengals will keep one of their most popular and talented players while also making sure an ascending vocal leader remains a part of its young locker room.

These were the best reactions to the Mixon news we saw online.

The news came right as the Bengals were getting ready to practice for the first time since their scrimmage on Sunday.

After practice, in which he participated in, Mixon took to Twitter for the first time since inking his new deal. Tyler Boyd, who signed his extension during last year’s training camp, offered his support.
