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. Thu, May 15, 2014 07:16:00 PM

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 defense. Now 30 years old, he projects as a strict backup wherever he lands. Gerald Hodges can fill the role for the Vikings.

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

Mitchell has been working alongside 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.

Vikings re-signed LB Marvin Mitchell.

A reserve linebacker and special teamer, Mitchell started one game in 2012, but played only 46 snaps on defense. He'll serve in a similar role in 2013.

Vikings signed LB Marvin Mitchell.

After four years as a Saints special teamer, Mitchell recorded 30 tackles, one sack, and one interception as a Dolphins reserve last season. The 27-year-old will provide depth at linebacker while bolstering the Vikings' coverage units.

Dolphins signed LB Marvin Mitchell, formerly of the Saints.

Mitchell fits best as an early-down inside linebacker. He'll give the Dolphins depth there while trying to make the club as a special teamer. The signing could signal the end for Austin Spitler, who is nursing an ankle injury.

Free agent LB Marvin Mitchell visited the Bengals on Tuesday.

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.

Saints LB Marvin Mitchell appeared to injure his lower back in the second quarter of Monday's Week 16 game but returned shortly after.

Mitchell was seen winching and grabbing his lower back after he made a tackle. He returned following halftime to force a big goal line fumble.

Saints re-signed restricted free agent LB Marvin Mitchell to a one-year, $1.101 million contract.

A backup linebacker, Mitchell will return as one of New Orleans' core special teamers. Though moderately productive in kickoff coverage (eight ST tackles in '09), Mitchell lacks the range to be a legitimate full-time option at either of the Saints' problematic outside linebacker positions.
Tue, Apr 20, 2010 02:12:00 PM

Saints second-year LB Marvin Mitchell might get a chance to compete with Scott Shanle at weak-side linebacker.

With Jonathan Vilma (knee) limited, Mitchell saw action at MLB during OTAs, but we have a hard time believing he'd fit well at the WILL. Mitchell is big and a hitter, but lacks speed. Mark Simoneau might provide better competition.

Saints signed seventh-round LB Marvin Mitchell to a three-year contract.

Mitchell, a 6-3/249-pound Tennessee product, is the classic run-stuffing, two-down inside linebacker. He'll be competing to back up likely starter Brian Simmons while incumbent Mark Simoneau works in nickel situations.
