Vikings Sign Linebacker, Mitchell
The Vikings signed free agent linebacker Marvin Mitchell Tuesday to a contract. The 27-year old Mitchell was a 7th round pick by New Orleans in 2007 and played 4 seasons with the Saints before playing last season with Miami. Mitchell had 30 tackles, 2 forced fumbles, 1 sack and 1 interception last season with the Dolphins. He primarily played on special teams for the Dolphins.
The Vikings currently have just 3 veteran linebackers under contract, Jasper Brinkley, Chad Greenway and Erin Henderson. Longtime Viking middle linebacker E.J. Henderson is still an unsigned free agent.
