I guess he was from the NFLEL. But what I dont understand is why are we wasting money on signing these other players when we need the most money possible to sign Ty Law?

Because they aren't wasting any cap space signing someone like that.

In the off-season, before the cutdown date, only the top 40 or so salaries make up your salary cap.

Clint is Scanlon's cousin and Jared Allen's brother in law twice removed.

Who?

IIRC, Mitchell's an ex-Donk draft pick. Apparently, we are trying to lead the league in Mitchell's.

Camp fodder and because NFLEL players get a roster exemption until the last cuts. That means we can go into our last preseason game with more players and can play the scrubs instead of getting one of our starters injured.

what he said and he said


any of these league minimum type signings do not count one single bit against the cap and the team doesn't have a max roster number of players right now either.


almost complete freebies

Yes! A quick search at ESPN has uncovered the final acquisitions the Chiefs need to make to guarantee a trip to the Super Bowl:

Lance Mitchell Arizona
Brandon Mitchell Atlanta
Jeff Mitchell Carolina
Anthony Mitchell Cincinnati
Mel Mitchell New Orleans
Qasim Mitchell Chicago

The Chiefs are on their way to cornering the NFL market on Mitchells!

Yeah, he was part of the Denver class a few years ago... not sure what happened with him. I don't know if this was the guy battling injuries... or if he had "personal" issues, all I know is he never panned out.

Hey ... first FredEx, now this guy... keep it up and KC will give Denver a run for the "spare pickup title for 2005".

I really dislike the FredEx nickname. It just doesn't fit. When I think of Maurice Clarett, that's when I think of the phrase, "When it absolutely, positively has to get 40 yards overnight."

Enh, kinda reaching... maybe Freddie should be "Allstate" ... you're in good hands.

heh. Unfortunately for the Broncos, all the spares they picked up are expected to actually make the final roster.

These guys the Chiefs have, they may not even be on the roster in the opener, but Im pretty confident that the terds that Denver imported will be on the field for them this season.


So maybe if KC keeps it up they might take as many flyers on players as Denver did, but KC isnt projecting them to be on the roster by the time the regular season starts.

Clint is a guy who really needed to stay for his senior year at Florida. That has really hurt him. He has an excellent motor, really a non stop guy but he lacks bulk for an NFL DE and is a liability against the run.
