The 26-year-old had initially signed a four-year contract worth $48 million. He was entering the third year of that deal. Under the previous terms, he was set to earn a base salary of $9.4 million, which was not guaranteed, resulting in a cap hit of around $12.8 million. However, the specific details of the restructured contract have not been disclosed. The restructured contract not only gives the Bengals financial flexibility but also confirms Mixon as the team’s RB1.

There were rumors that Joe Mixon’s legal troubles could lead to his departure from the Bengals. However, fate intervened as both the player and the team found common ground for the upcoming 2023 NFL season. 

Selected by the Bengals in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft, Joe Mixon has faced many controversies. He faces a charge for allegedly waving a gun at a woman in a road rage incident. In addition, Mixon was allegedly linked to an incident where shots were fired from his residence at a group of teenagers. However, no charges were filed against him. Still, throughout his tenure, Mixon has had the full support of head coach Zac Taylor.
