After the Patriots win over the Bengals last Sunday, running back Joe Mixon made news when he tweeted out that he was “too scared” to ask Tom Brady for his jersey following the game.
Brady replied to Mixon’s tweet the next day saying he’d send one his way and Mixon couldn’t believe it.
On Friday, Mixon finally received an autographed jersey and shared his excitement and appreciation over Twitter.
“Man I say this in the most humbled way I’m so blessed to be playing this game,” Mixon said in the tweet with a picture attached of him holding the jersey. “Super thankful for the G.O.AT., @TomBrady. Best Christmas gift ever.”

The jersey also contained a special message for Mixon that read; “Joe a great player! Keep going! Bay Area’s Best!”
The goodwill didn’t stop there, Mixon intends to give the gift forward by sending his own jerseys to a local Boys and Girls Club.
