If there’s one team that notoriously cares less about player character and more about second chances than anyone else in the NFL, it’s the Cincinnati Bengals. So it’s no surprise that they took Joe Mixon with the No. 48 overall pick in the draft.

Cincinnati traded down from their spot at 41 to 48 in a trade with Minnesota, picking up a 4th-round pick as part of the deal. While the Vikings took one player with character concerns — Dalvin Cook — the Bengals took the most notorious player in the draft.

Mixon was suspended for the entire 2014 season at Oklahoma for punching a female student and breaking bones in her face. He recently settled the civil suit with the victim. Mixon was also suspended a game last season for an incident with a parking attendant.

Bengals owner Mike Brown approved the pick for Cincinnati. His feeling has always been that it’s the coaches’ jobs to keep the players in line. Numerous teams removed Mixon from their draft boards because of his character and history.

When the pick was announced by Bengals legend Anthony Munoz, the fans in Philly responded with boos:

By sheer odds, you'd think EVENTUALLY one of these b*stards would clue in and walk the straight and narrow. Nobody is asking you to apply for Sainthood, but how about JUST NOT GETTING ARRESTED?

COULD YOU DO THAT, BROTHER?

Incredibly, there are players that manage not to have a DUI, children with one woman (some even marry them, how quaint), not have a posse, but friends. Don't have to be a rap star on the side. Date a Kardashian, hold out after signing a contract, etc. 

How about, just play football? And get paid well above minimum wage to do it. You'll stay in the league a lot longer, and we all know what that means. If you don't know, ask your agent. Oh, BTW, make sure your agent isn't your cousin, too, um-kay?

Good Luck, Bengals

Im personally rooting against him,just because a person now has money,it doesn't automatically turn them into a good person,in most cases the opposite applys,it turns them into bigger jags.
