Earl Mitchell visiting Seahawks this week

The Seahawks are taking a meeting with a possible veteran addition to their defensive line on Wednesday.

PFT has learned, via a league source, that defensive tackle Earl Mitchell will be visiting with the team.

Mitchell spent the last two seasons in the NFC West with the 49ers, so the Seahawks have some recent experience playing against him. He started 28 of the 30 games he played over that span and recorded 61 tackles and a sack.

Mitchell has also played for the Dolphins and Texans since Houston made him a third-round pick in 2010.

The Seahawks saw defensive tackle Shamar Stephen leave as a free agent this month. Jarran Reed, Poona Ford and Nazair Jones remain on hand from last season’s group.

  1. I dont get Naz Jones lack of playing time last year? There are moments in games he looks dominant. Pete Carroll doesn’t even dress him.

    Jarren Reed, Poona Ford look legit. So hopefully they can get a little more depth to improve against the sun. If Earl Mitchell is it I am happy

  2. @ Belgium, If Seattle waits out Suh to sign him for dirt cheap, do you think he will practice harder than last season in LA playing for next to nothing?

  3. Earl’s a real pro. But lots of mileage on him and the tank is on empty.

    OK against the run and non existent vs pass

    Do I think he will practice harder? No, he seems like an Allen Iverson type guy that doesn’t really believe in practice. He shows up on gameday. Do I want Suh for the right price…eh not the best option. I’d rather have Danny Shelton. I was trying to remember that guy when I posted that comment yesterday and I couldn’t think of Shelton’s name for some reason, but i think if we brought Danny back to Seattle (where he played college) I think that would help him out. Dude is monster. But back on the Suh topic, I wouldn’t mind having Suh, who knows maybe he didn’t like being with the Rams or playing with Wade, most guys like playing in Seattle for the coaching staff. Mebane says he misses playing with the Seahawks, and Russell Wilson.

  5. On the whole Suh topic…I don’t think Seattle is opposed to signing him, but they usually like guys on one year prove it deals and Suh has made so much money that he doesn’t really fit that mold.
