Marvin Mitchell LB MIN 12 Days
Free agent Marvin Mitchell is not expected to be re-signed by the Vikings.
Mitchell opened last season as the starter at weak-side linebacker, lost it briefly, and then regained it after Desmond Bishop tore his ACL. But he was really a part-time player and special teamer due to his struggles in pass protection. Now 30 years old, he projects as a strict backup wherever he lands. Gerald Hodges can fill the role for the Vikings.
