Controversial running back Mixon drafted by Bengals

Or, some might say, a franchise without a moral compass.

Following his selection, ESPN broadcaster Trey Wingo showed the video of Mixon's assault on Molitor. He settled a lawsuit from the woman just last week.

The Bengals traded down in the second round on Friday and took Mixon, putting them back in the spotlight as a place known for giving second and third chances.

Mixon said he was open and honest with teams during the interview process.

Sorry, we didn't recognize the link you were trying to embed. "He's lived with this since the day it's occurred".

An estimated crowd of 100,000 people gathered on Thursday and many were back for the second night.

Although Lewis accepted Mixon's explanation, he said watching videotape of Mixon punching Molitor in the face was unsettling. "But it was one day in the young man's life". "But this thing's got to move forward, and he's got to move on. He's committed to doing that".

He told a conference call of his reaction to being drafted: "It was very emotional".

Each side apparently sold the other. With A.J. Green on the other side and Tyler Eifert at tight end, the Bengals all of a sudden have a very unsafe passing game. He then trolled fans by thanking them "for allowing me to have a career in the NFL" and bragging about the "five-time world champions".

'Hopefully, I can teach them for the next time and how to react a certain way'.

None of this is to say Mixon should be barred from the National Football League or should have been drafted lower. "I was able to apologize to her one-on-one". Talking together helps move us past what happened. "I'm glad to let y'all know that I have other hobbies and other interests that keep me grounded, that keep stress from bothering me or taking away from my game".

Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com and Jared Sherman of CSNPhilly.com both believe that Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon, Florida cornerback Quincy Wilson and Washington safety Budda Baker are possible picks for the Eagles in the second round. The answers, from most corners, were "no" and "Cincinnati". It was enough to draft him with the 48th pick on Friday night.

"My head nearly came off my shoulders", the former Washington receiver said in a conference call shortly after the Cincinnati Bengals made him the No. 9 selection Thursday night.

The woman claimed Mixon had been harassing her and her friends. You can also argue that a graphic video like that has no business on a television broadcast being watched by children, domestic violence victims and anyone else who might be sensitive to that kind of violence. By the end of the campaign, he had recorded one of the best ever receiving seasons for the Huskies. Mixon entered a plea deal in 2014 that allowed him to maintain his innocence and was suspended during his freshman season. The incident was captured on video and released publicly. He ranked fourth nationally among running backs who averaged at least 100.0 rushing yards per game with his 6.81 yards per carry. He ran for 1,060 last season with 10 touchdowns while splitting time with Mixon. But he is going to be a severely scrutinized player for the Bengals. Adam "Pacman" Jones is a living, breathing example of that. I'm so proud of you.

Ross also had multiple knee injuries during his college career, but Lewis said he passed the team's rigorous pre-draft medical evaluations with no issues. We feel really comfortable about how to handle it'. There's a lot of good prospects.

"The one thing you can't (overcome) is when a guy doesn't do the right thing to stay here".
