Bengals running back Joe Mixon is entering a contract year and according to reports, he’s prepared for a holdout if he can’t get a long-term contract from Cincinnati before the season. 

Mixon has been one of the few bright spots on a very bad offense.  He’s rushed for at least 1,100 yards in back-to-back seasons.  Teamed up with Joe Burrow and AJ Green, the Bengals offense could put up some pretty big numbers.
