Free agent safety Mike Mitchell says he's agreed to terms on a 1-year deal with #Panthers. Will compete w/ DJ Campbell and H Nakamura at SS.

If he loses to Nakamura, he should probably retire...


He won't, he'll make a solid starting SS. The difference between him and Tyvon Branch is insignificant. The Raiders made the mistake to committ to Branch last year though.


If the difference between Mitchell and Branch is 'insignificant', then apparently I've been vastly overrated Branch -- Mitchell is very mediocre.

You have. He's not the same player he was. Could not cover to save his life last year. His angles on the ball were atrocious too.

The bold is the biggest problem with Branch. Just terrible terrible angles that lead to big plays...

Should see some Orlovsky vs Manziel this week in the battle of "who's less aware of their surroundings"

Orlovsky has too much experience here. Manziel doesn't stand a chance.

I think it was against Tampa, I remember seeing him take just the absolute worst angle of pursuit I have ever seen. I could not believe it.

If you think Branch is much better than Mitchell, then yes, you have. Branch isn't a playmaker, all he does is rack up tackles and he's usually a reliable tackler, although he wasn't that good with that last season.
The way i see it, Mitchell played better than Branch at the end of last season.

He was a solid starter when Branch was out so i guess we'll see.


I liked how he threw his hands up in confusion when Gates went right by him in the endzone for an easy TD. He's a solid tackler but he has terrible awareness.
