It’s difficult to express how much of an emotional rollercoaster the last two days have been. Extended days and sleepless evenings. I’m feeling so many different things about the choice that was made that I’m not sure where to begin,” Mixon wrote. “Over the past seven years in Cincinnati, I’ve formed a ton of relationships and friendships that will last a lifetime. I’ve always just wanted to win football games and return with a championship ring for Cincinnati. I will always remember my role as a facilitator and as a witness to the significant cultural shift that the team and the city underwent during my tenure here. From a 2-14 squad to a Super Bowl contender, they have experienced tremendous growth. Reviving the city and its supporters in the past several years is an unparalleled sensation. The true fans’ support remained unwavering. I am grateful to my teammates, whom I will always refer to as my brothers, for their unwavering commitment, hard effort, and love in the game. Remain loyal to the game and to yourself at all times. “Stay 10 toes and never fold,” as we say. I want to express my sincere gratitude to Cincinnati, the place I’ve called home for the past seven years, and the supporters who have welcomed me into their families. It’s difficult to express how much this place and the people here mean to me, but thank you for helping me realize my dream. Cincinnati is a place I’ll always call home. 28 out. The farewell post made me feel extremely overwhelmed and emotional, but I assure you all that I greatly appreciate it. You took a chance on a 20-year-old kid and made me feel loved from day one.”
