NFL teams relieved after Mixon assures them he “probably” won’t punch another female in the face

Teams from around the NFL have had been worried about University of Oklahoma draft prospect running back Joe Mixon. Following an incident in 2014, in which Mixon pled guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge for punching a woman and breaking bones in her face, Mixon was banned from attending the NFL Combine.

In his final season at Oklahoma, the redshirt sophomore rushed for 1,274 yards and scored 15 total touchdowns. Yet NFL clubs weren’t sure what to make of the talented runner, considering his checkered past.

However, after conducting a few interviews, reactions from NFL personnel has been largely positive.

“Going into the interview process, we were very skeptical about Mixon.” said one NFL scout, that wished to be left unnamed.

“There is usually a rule that when someone is a violent offender, they usually are also a repeat offender. Yet when we spoke to Joe, he really put our minds at ease. We asked him point blank: “Are you going to punch another woman in the face?” and he provided his answer without the least bit of a hesitation. “Probably not.” he said. That is the kind of straight shooting we were looking for.”

“We realize that drafting Mixon could be a little bit controversial.”said the unnamed scout. “But this isn’t a Ray Rice situation. This kid can actually play.”
