We said all pre-season that the Vikings have an insane amount of depth on the defensive line, and that they should probably try to trade some of it away for help at other spots. Well, the Vikings are doing that now, but the help they're getting isn't immediate.
Mitchell joined the Vikings as an undrafted free agent out of Mississippi in 2006. He had only one tackle this season so far, a sack that came in the season opener.
I wish we could have gotten something more for Mitchell, but it is what it is. Better than letting someone that talented walk away without any compensation at all.
Best of luck to Jayme Mitchell in Cleveland!
