Just thinking out loud
Mitchell will be a FA and as a player who has started most of his career will not come cheap as many expect. His experience will afford him the opportunity to sign his next contract for something considerably more than the Vet minimum. So do you offer Mitchell a bigger respectable contract to be a 3 tech DE, a position he hasn't played with questions if he can excel? or does he become ineffective as a 3 tech like Sapp in Oakland? And a DE contract will also be considerably more than a DT contract.
