Christmas has come early for Joe Mixon.

Mixon “couldn’t believe” he was able to shake Tom Brady’s hand after Sunday’s Patriots-Bengals game, but he left the exchange with a sense of regret. The Cincinnati running back was hoping to get his hands on a Brady jersey, but he admitted he was too afraid to ask the future Hall of Fame quarterback.

Brady caught wind of Mixon’s desires and revealed Monday he’ll be sending a jersey to the 23-year-old. Mixon, a Bay Area native, was thrilled to learn his wish is being granted and plans to return the favor.

Just another day in the life of TB12.
