Joe Mixon had more baggage coming into the NFL draft than arguably any player in recent history.
The Oklahoma running back, who was suspended from the Sooners’ football team in 2014 for punching a female student in the face, was drafted by seemingly the worst team possible for a guy stricken by bad behavior – the Cincinnati Bengals.
At least a high reverenced veteran teammate who knows how to stay out of trouble would take him under his wing though, right? Not exactly.
According to TMZ, Adam “Pacman” Jones is reportedly mentoring Mixon during his first months as a professional football player.
Jones, a career criminal who’s been arrested 12 times cumulating to perhaps the worst rap sheet of any active player in the NFL, has taken Mixon under his wing, even taking the rook to a Future concert in Cincinnati on Wednesday.
