Schefter notes that Mitchell had his best statistical season for the Panthers in 2013 when now Cardinals’ HC Steve Wilks was his DBs coach.
Mitchell, 31, is a former second-round pick of the Raiders back in 2009. After four years in Oakland and a brief stint with the Panthers, Mitchell signed a five-year, $25 million contract with $5.75 million guaranteed with the Steelers back in 2014.
Unfortunately, the Steelers released him back in March.
In 2017, Mitchell appeared in 13 games for the Steelers and recorded 53 tackles, no interceptions, a fumble recovery and two pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 62 safety out of 87 qualifying players.
