Cowboys looking at former Eagle Freddie Mitchell

New, comments

With T.O. being sidelined with his hamstring injury and not much depth behind him, the Cowboys worked out Freddie Mitchell on Sunday.

The Cowboys are set with T.O., Glenn and Crayton, but after that there aren't too many guys Parcells feels comfortable with. Mitchell was a former first round pick out of UCLA who turned out to be a bust.

Mitchell, who played his college ball at nearby UCLA, never lived up to first-round expectations, catching 90 passes in four years. His best season came in 2003 when he recorded career-highs in catches (35), receiving yards (498) and touchdowns (two).

To me, this is just the Cowboys covering all bases like they did with Lincoln Kennedy. Even if we do end up signing him, I'm sure it won't cost us much under the cap and it would be mainly for insurance purposes like when Peerless Price was signed last season. Although I don't know if there is room enough on the team to accomodate the egos both T.O. and Mitchell.
