Marvin Mitchell LB MIN 3 Months

Free agent LBs Marvin Mitchell, James Anderson and Stevenson Sylvester worked out for the Patriots.

It's the first we've heard of Mitchell since the start of free agency. Mitchell started 10 games for the Vikings last season, but was shuffled back and forth between the field and the bench as he struggled in coverage. Going on 30, he'd be fighting for one of the Patriots' final roster spots.

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.

Vikings Marvin Mitchell has been getting first-team reps at weak-side linebacker in OTAs.

Mitchell has been working along side Erin Henderson and Chad Greenway as a starter, but will face competition for the job from Gerald Hodges and Tyrone McKenzie. After playing primarily on special teams since entering the league, Mitchell has a legitimate shot at earning a starting role.

Free agent LB Marvin Miller visited the Bengals Wednesday.

Mitchell profiled as a two-down thumper on the inside coming out of Tennessee, but he's been limited to special teams duty with the Saints the past four years.
