Dorsey combined for 193 total tackles and assists before he signed that deal.
He was a former #5 overall pick.
Mitchell will totaled 85+49(prorated) 134.
Sammie lee Hill is a 329lb space eater, something Mitchell is not.
Dwan Edwards is an 8-yr veteran at the time.
There's nothing to compare between Knighton and Mitchell.
Knighton became a force the moment he set foot on the field.
He's not only big, but also fast.
All veterans with more years in service.
S. Marks is somewhat comparable; he was drafted higher, at #62 overall.
He signed a one-yr contact for $1.5M, basically a stop-gap measured.
Team can be more willing to give a player a little more money on a short term deal.
Mosley is a veteran and signed for a two-yr deal at $2.75M
Anyway, that list is still too long, I got tired of looking them up.
The best thing you can help me out if to filter it down to guys that were drafted a year ahead of Mitchell.
Check to see how they perform as compared to Mitchell.
We will have a better idea of the cost of resigning him.
For example, don't bother comparing him with Raji, Perry, or Knighton.
