Tom Brady Gifts Jersey to Starstruck Joe Mixon
Bengals running back Joe Mixon gashed the Patriots defensive line all day Sunday in a 34-13 loss. Mixon ran for 136 yards and a hefty 5.4 yards per carry. He’s on the verge of finishing he season on the right side of 1000 yards. Yet it was after Pats-Bengals game ended that Mixon had his most memorable moment of the day. He met Tom Brady.
Mixon shared his excitement at shaking Brady’s hand on Twitter but also how he was too nervous to ask for Brady’s jersey. The postgame jersey swap has become common practice in the NFL.
Brady caught wind of Mixon’s experience and will be taking care of Mixon.
Great game Joe, I’ll send a jersey your way! https://t.co/U2Et9XYgzK— Tom Brady (@TomBrady) December 16, 2019
