The Green Bay Packers are after some more running backs. We all know that. They appear to be chasing two of the most controversial ones available.
We’ve been over their continued flirtation with former Minnesota Vikings running back and child abuser Adrian Peterson. The Packers also appear extremely interested in former Oklahoma Sooners running back and woman puncher Joe Mixon.
This isn’t the first time the Packers have been connected to Mixon. One of the team’s scouts was wowed by Mixon at his pro day.
The assumption then was Mixon was too talented — he’s considered by most to be the most talented back in this draft — to be available when the Packers pick at No. 29. That doesn’t seem entirely far-fetched anymore, with rumors circulating that some teams have removed Mixon from their draft board entirely.
So now the Packers are flirting with Mixon too.
Aforementioned team that brought in Joe Mixon this week was the Packers. Like others, getting info/medical they didn't get at Combine.
The assault was pretty bad, but it happened in 2014. Only last year did the video of it get released.
In theory, Mixon could be a different person today than he was three years ago. In theory, the Packers might not care one way or another.
Who would you rather have? A guy who beats his children or one who punches women?
