Mitchell, an undrafted free agent out of Purdue, spent the 2022 season with the New England Patriots before being waived on August 15. Primarily utilized on special teams, the 6-foot-3, 262-pounder played in 16 games and recorded eight total tackles last season while playing 71 percent of his team's special teams snaps.
During his two seasons with Purdue, Mitchell appeared in 18 games, tallying 59 total tackles, 13 of which were tackles for loss, 5.5 sacks, and three forced fumbles. Before transferring to Purdue, Mitchell played two seasons at Southwest Mississippi Community College, which included a season at running back before putting on 15 pounds and moving to linebacker.
Defensive end Jordan Ferguson, a free agent signing earlier this month, was released to make room on the roster.
