Bucs signed DE Jayme Mitchell to a one-year contract.

Mitchell has always appeared to have the physical tools at 6'6/285, but he's consistently disappointing on the field. During 43 games with the Vikings and Browns, he's posted just 6.5 sacks. Mitchell will be in a fight to stick with the Bucs as a rotational end.

Browns released DE Jayme Mitchell.

Mitchell became expendable after the Browns signed Frostee Rucker and Juqua Parker. Mitchell had never made a start before making 13 of them last season. He graded out as one of the league's worst 4-3 ends by Pro Football Focus. He should latch on elsewhere as a situational run stuffer.

Coach Pat Shurmur indicated the Browns will search for a defensive right end upgrade in 2012.

"We had to focus on getting some guys that can play defensive line," said Shurmur. "With (Ahtyba) Rubin, (Phil) Taylor and (Jabaal) Sheard, we think we solidified those three spots pretty well." Jayme Mitchell and Emmanuel Sanders, who manned right end in 2011, are better utilized as rotational ends.

Browns RE Jayme Mitchell (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 12.

It will be the second game Mitchell has missed in three weeks. Mitchell hasn't been an IDP factor this season, notching just 24 tackles and two sacks. Emmanuel Stephens will start in his place.
Sat, Nov 26, 2011 12:35:00 PM

The Browns will keep Jayme Mitchell at right defensive end with rookie Jabaal Sheard at left defensive end going forward.

Mitchell is more of a long-bodied run-defender type at 6-foot-6, 285, but the Browns want to keep Sheard at his natural position. Through two games, Mitchell has 7 tackles (6 solo) without a big play. Sheard has 8 tackles (7 solo), and is coming off a breakout game against the Colts with a sack and forced fumble. He's the far more explosive rusher and better IDP target.

Browns re-signed LE Jayme Mitchell to a two-year contract.

Mitchell is a player perceived as having loads of untapped potential in the Cleveland front office. He's flashed in preseason games before, but remains a complete projection as a potential starter. Mitchell will be given very opportunity to win the strong-side defensive end job with the Browns. Marcus Benard will be a nickel rusher behind Mitchell and RE Jabaal Sheard.

Free agent DE Jayme Mitchell's agent spoke to the Browns before the lockout and believes there is "mutual interest" on both sides.

New DL coach Dwaine Board reportedly told Mitchell's agent that his client would be given a chance to start if he re-signed. "I want to get somewhere I can start," confirmed Mitchell. The Browns have been publicly high on the 27-year-old former undrafted free agent. He should return on a cheap, short-term deal.
Fri, Jul 8, 2011 05:28:00 PM

Browns GM Tom Heckert believes free agent DE Jayme Mitchell was the team's best pass rusher last season.

It's kind of a slap in the face to Marcus Benard and Matt Roth. Mitchell, acquired from the Vikings last October, appeared in two games and played 11 snaps on defense. Heckert's comments indicate that he believes Mitchell has starter's ability. The Browns will likely re-sign him to compete at left end.
Thu, Jul 7, 2011 09:42:00 AM

Browns GM Tom Heckert says the team plans to re-sign free agent DE Jayme Mitchell once the lockout ends.

Mitchell, 27, didn't play a snap last year after being acquired from the Vikings just before the trade deadline. At 6'6/285, Mitchell could project as a run-stopping end in Cleveland's new 4-3 defense, bookending No. 37 overall pick Jabaal Sheard. Mitchell does not have the look of an impact pass rusher.
Mon, May 9, 2011 03:18:00 PM

Browns coach Eric Mangini hinted that newly acquired Jayme Mitchell may play outside linebacker in Cleveland.

Mitchell, a defensive end with the Vikings, hasn't played linebacker since high school and has never played in a 3-4. But he's a natural pass rusher, so it shouldn't take him too long to adjust.
Thu, Oct 7, 2010 09:01:00 AM

Browns acquired DE Jayme Mitchell from the Vikings in exchange for a 2012 late-round pick.

Mitchell had a strong preseason in addition to a Week 1 sack on Drew Brees, but he was a healthy scratch in Week 3. He'll add depth as a situational pass-rusher to a Browns defensive line that has been beaten up with injuries of late.
Tue, Oct 5, 2010 04:19:00 PM

Vikings re-signed DE Jayme Mitchell to a two-year contract.

Mitchell wasn't tendered a restricted free agent offer, but he's returning at a lesser rate. He's still recovering from a torn ACL suffered in preseason last August. Mitchell will be a fourth end at best next season. He's clearly behind Jared Allen, Ray Edwards, and Brian Robison on the depth chart.
Thu, Feb 26, 2009 05:52:00 PM

Vikings DE Jayme Mitchell suffered a torn ACL in Saturday's preseason opener. He will be placed on injured reserve, ending his season.

Mitchell was Minnesota's top backup at left end, behind Ray Edwards. This hurts the Vikings' depth, but Brian Robison is better anyways and makes for a fine replacement if needed. Otis Grigsby may also now make the club.
