Mitchell`s contract is up this year and the so called expects say he`s worth 5 mill. from the lists i`ve seen its about an average group of middle LB`ers. don`t know if anyone else will free up. i`d offer him 3-4 mill and see what happens. this year tag Allen. he is the one we cannot give up the most. LJ`s contract isnt up till next year. i personally think mitchell is just average. i dont think he is the "killer" type middle linebacker a true play maker to be offered over 5 mill.
