Mitchell missed all of the 2019 season with a torn achilles’ tendon after participating in Tampa Bay’s training camp. He attended Northwestern State and went undrafted in 2015. Mitchell is looking to prove he is ready for the NFL in 2020.
Mitchell played in the CFL where he had 97 receptions, 1,418 yards receiving and six touchdowns.
With the addition of Tom Brady, Mitchell could be an asset for the Buccaneers this season. He could be a depth piece to Tampa’s receiving corp. However, his NFL talents have yet to be seen. The Buccaneers aren’t taking a major risk in signing Mitchell.
