Cincinnati Bengals running back 23-year-old Joe Mixon tweeted he was a bit star-struck after shaking Brady’s hand.
What We Know:
Bruh.. I still can’t believe I shook @TomBrady hand today and had a lil conversation with him I ain’t gone lie I wanted to ask for his jersey but was too scared to ask

Great game Joe, I’ll send a jersey your way! https://t.co/U2Et9XYgzK

- He admitted that he wanted to ask Brady for his jersey but got too nervous and didn’t ask. Brady saw this and happily sent a jersey down his way.
- Joe responded with “Oh man!! I’m lost for words. Appreciate you GOAT #BayLegend“. He also posted “Bro @TomBrady just made my Year this is crazy! Man I’m so blessed to be playing this game! Just know one is on the way for ya brotha”.
- The Patriots beat Cincinnati, 34-13, on Sunday. Cincinnati has not been doing well this year with the team being 1-13 on the season, and will most likely hold the No. 1 pick in next year’s NFL Draft. Mixon’s swap with Brady could be the highlight.
Mixon had 136 yards on 25 carries but failed to score a touchdown. He has three rushing touchdowns with 925 rushing yards on 231 carries in 14 games this season.
