Running back Joe Mixon had a busy weekend.
The former University of Oklahoma standout flew to Cincinnati to meet with members of the Bengals coaching staff and front office, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. The two sides had previously met prior to Mixon’s pro day in Norman, Oklahoma on March 8, NFL Network’s Aditi Kinkhabwala previously reported.
Mixon was barred from the NFL Scouting Combine under an NFL conduct policy due to punching a female student in 2014. He later ran a 4.50 40-yard-dash time at his pro day.
Mixon rushed for 1,274 yards on 187 carries in 2016 for a 6.8 yards-per-carry average. He was ranked as the No. 5 running back in the draft on NFL Network draft guru Mike Mayock’s positional rankings, which were put together in February prior to the combine.
