Bills linebacker Kawika Mitchell, who won a Super Bowl with the Giants, has been on injured reserve for most of the year. We’ve interacted with him via Twitter, and we like him.
We like him even more tonight, because he hasn’t held his tongue regarding his team’s most recent personnel move.
In response to our tweet regarding the Bills’ decision to claim Incognito on waivers from the Rams, Mitchell sounded off: “BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT THIS YR. THE GUYS A BUM. DIRTY AND ALWAYS WILL BE. REALLY WISH I WAS PLAYIN RITE NOW. SERIOUSLY… I KNO WE’RE N NEED OF OLINE BUT THIS GUY SUKS BALLS.”
Mitchell later said he shouldn’t have said what he said, and he explained that “we’ve had our moments” when Mitchell played for the Chiefs and Incognito was with the Rams.
So how awkward might the situation become? With Incognito signed only through this season, there’s a chance he’ll be long gone before Mitchell and Incognito are lining up against each other at practice.
We can only hope Incognito is re-signed. Though it’s unlikely that Mitchell will be the guy to finally get through to Incognito (we say that because we don’t think anyone can), we’d love to see Mitchell give it an effort.
