Re: Texans salary cap 2014
Another guy that is comparable somewhat is Roy Miller; he's 310lbs and had started 39 games before signing the new 2-yr contract at $4.5M, with $1.8M cap hit in the first year.
If Mitchell stays healthy, he will have started 19 games.
Miller became a big part of the defense in his rookie year.
He started all 16 games in his second year.
Only injury prevented him to start 13 of the 16 games in the third year.
Basically, he had shown more than Mitchell did, and earlier than Mitchell did.
They were both drafted at the exact 81 spot.
Miller weighs 310lbs per wiki.
