This is a huge signing. I have wanted this guy for a while. He was a big part of the Giants road to the SB and capable of starting. I think Gregg Williams in time can find the best in this guy. Look for him to be one of our top defensive players. The Giants were just stacked with talent, and since leaving I just dont think he has had the coaching he needs. He is a potential beast.
BTW his nickname is KIWI

Mitchell. Sure he is low risk but he was on an injury settlement only just recently so how fit can he be. There is no doubt he is NFL mentally ready though
As fit as PT?

Bad luck, and then worse luck for betts, Bad luck for him of course other Saints RBs getting healthy (He would have probably gotten waived). Worse luck he got hurt. On the Mitchell signing, what I know of him is that he is active and around the ball alot. Low risk, high reward like every body else that is on this roster. We'll put the hunger in him an he'll be one hellva sign late in the season. Plus he can spell, Vilma and has some experience playing on Shanle's side so I wouldn't rule out some spelling of Shanle as well.

Not sure if he actually hits the field or is an insurance policy.
reading between the lines I believe this means PT is almost a certain go for Sunday---do we dress 4 RB's plus a FB and sit a TE?

Sit a tight-end, spread the field and work the ball around and frustrate the Rams into submission. Reggie and PT get increased work with Ivory carrying the day.

Hes not a tackling machine like lewis or urlacher, but seems to be equal to Vilma, and is defiantly better than spoon. We also made Vilma better, and he seems to be in his prime.Nice pickup.

Time to make the DOMENuts !!!!

The more I read the more intresting he sounds. The Mighty Kiwi!
Hopefully this means we don't HAVE to draft a LB with the 32nd overall pick but can draft a DE or just BPA.
