Joe Mixon will work with Adrian Peterson this summer


Joe Mixon will train with Adrian Peterson after the Bengals’ offseason program concludes. Peterson co-owns a Houston gym, O Athletik, which opened last year.

It’ll be fun,” Mixon told Katherine Terrell of ESPN. “He’s going to push me, and I’ll push him.”

Mixon and Peterson both played at Oklahoma, forming a connection. Mixon wore Peterson’s No. 28 in high school and asked for the number again in the NFL.

Mixon and Peterson also have dealt with off-field issues.

“He always bounces back, from whatever, from anything,” Mixon said. “I think he’s going to have a breakout year again.”

    From…a stick?

    If Lawrence Phillips was still alive (RIP) you could add him and have the 4 Musketeers.

    Joe Mixon will work with Adrian Peterson this summer

    Peterson is going to teach him how to fumble at the most inopportune times.

    Joe Mixon will work with Adrian Peterson … There’s a “punch” line in there somewhere.

    Mixon is already a better all around RB than Peterson. Peterson is one of the best pure runners the NFL has ever seen, but Mixon is a great receiver too. In today’s NFL, Mixon may be the more valuable player. As far as the off-field stuff, Peterson should be in a cage for what he did to his kid(s). It wasn’t a one time deal. Mixon was physically assaulted by a woman, and he regrettably hit her back. I can give him a pass.

    Not even going to comment on that softball statement – it would be too easy.

    I have a much bigger problem with what Peterson did than Mixon.

    The workouts with Ray Rice were deemed too tame….

    Peterson could give Mixon tips on child discipline, while Mixon could show Peterson how to keep the little woman in check.
