The restructured contract will help the Bengals free up some salary cap space, which they will need to use to sign their other free agents. It also shows that the team is committed to Mixon, who is one of their most important players.

Mixon is coming off a career year in 2022. He rushed for 1,205 yards and 13 touchdowns, and he also caught 43 passes for 370 yards and two touchdowns. He was a key part of the Bengals’ run to the Super Bowl, and he is expected to be a major factor in their success in the years to come.

The restructured contract also comes amid rumors that Mixon could be traded. However, the deal all but eliminates the possibility of that happening. Mixon is now under contract for the next three seasons, and he is set to make over $30 million during that time.

The restructured contract is a win-win for both the Bengals and Mixon. The Bengals get to keep one of their best players, and Mixon gets to stay in Cincinnati, where he is happy and productive.

It will be interesting to see how Mixon performs in 2023. He will be entering his prime, and he will be expected to be one of the best running backs in the NFL. If he can stay healthy, he could have a monster season.

The Bengals are hoping that Mixon can help them build on their success of 2022. They have a young and talented team, and they are poised to be a contender for years to come. With Mixon in the fold, the Bengals’ future looks bright.
