Bengals releasing RB Joe Mixon, signing ex-Colts RB Zack Moss

The Cincinnati Bengals are moving on from Joe Mixon and have found his replacement.

Mixon is being released by the Bengals, who are signing former Indianapolis Colts running back Zack Moss to a two-year, $8 million contract, NFL Network insiders Mike Garafolo and Tom Pelissero reported Tuesday night.

Mixon's release, a move many thought was on the horizon an offseason ago, comes after seven seasons and his fourth 1,000-yard campaign. Mixon, a former second-round pick, helped the Bengals earn a berth in Super Bowl LVI and went to the Pro Bowl that same 2021 season. The 27-year-old's departure also frees up $6.1 million in cap space for Cincinnati, which used some of that cash on Moss.

Moss, 26, is in his best season yet, having fit in splendidly for Jonathan Taylor during the 2023 campaign for the Colts. He rushed for a career-high 794 yards in 14 games (eight starts) and his five rushing touchdowns were also the best of his career. Having begun his career with two-plus seasons as a member of the Buffalo Bills, Moss appears to be finding his stride.

Mixon is in Cincinnati and Moss is in.
