Cornerback Terrance Mitchell will soon be a Cleveland Brown, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Former Chiefs’ CB Terrance Mitchell intends to sign a 3-year, $12 million deal with the Cleveland Browns, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 14, 2018
The Browns’ current general manager, John Dorsey, originally signed Mitchell, 25, to the Chiefs’ practice squad in 2016 and became a role player for Kansas City in 2017, starting nine games. Mitchell registered four interceptions and 18 passes defensed.
Dorsey obviously liked Mitchell, as he originally signed him, and now the two reunite in Cleveland. This may not be the last player Dorsey considers taking back from Kansas City.
Here’s a quick list of other free agents up for grabs: QB Tyler Bray (Chiefs interested in his return),
WR Albert Wilson (going to the Dolphins), FB Anthony Sherman (re-signing in KC), CB Phillip Gaines (not expected to return), C Zach Fulton (going to Texans), NT Bennie Logan, CB Kenneth Acker, P Dustin Colquitt, LB Kevin Pierre-Louis, WR De’Anthony Thomas, G Jordan Devey, S Steven Terrell, DE Jarvis Jenkins, RFA: LB Ramik Wilson, RFA: DE Rakeem Nunez-Roches, ERFA: LB Terrance Smith
Three years for $12 million is probably more than I thought Mitchell would get. He was never outstanding and quarterbacks seemed to pick on him with Marcus Peters on the other side.
Now there is no Peters and there is no Mitchell. It’s looking more and more like the Chiefs opt for a top cornerback in the NFL Draft.
