Defensive End Jayme Mitchell Looking for Breakout Season With Cleveland Browns

Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal has a good article out today about Cleveland Browns defensive end Jayme Mitchell, who was acquired from the Minnesota Vikings last offseason and never really found a role with the team.

Now that the Browns are back to running the 4-3 defense, Mitchell goes back to his natural position as a base end in the 4-3, and he immediately becomes the Browns’ oldest starter on the defensive line at 27 years old.

Mitchell signed a new contract preventing him from practicing, but he is set for his first practice tonight and is really excited about the new opportunity.

“I’m very eager,” Mitchell said. “It’s been awhile since I’ve put the pads on and got at it. I’m ready to get in there and get the kinks out of the way, get the rust off and just go to work.

“I’m excited about the whole situation,” Mitchell said. “I’m excited about the opportunity to get out here and contribute to the Browns winning and just bringing the young guys along, just showing them different ways to do different things and how to get production from this season.”

Hopefully Mitchell can prove to the Browns that he’s been worth both their time and their money this season.
