Mitchell has already been linked to several teams and is shaping up to be a hot commodity. The 26-year-old was a poor fit in Houston's 3-4 scheme. The Chargers also run a 3-4. Mitchell would be best served to play three-technique on his next club. San Diego is looking for it's fourth starting nose tackle in four years.
Chargers OLB Jarret Johnson has agreed to take a pay cut.
Johnson was previously scheduled to earn a $4 million salary and count $5.5 million against the cap in the third year of a four-year, $19 million deal. He'll now earn a $1 million base and a $2 million signing bonus, clearing $1 million in cap space. The 32-year-old has recorded just 4.5 sacks in 26 games with San Diego.

The free-agent running back market has been ice-cold to this point, which could make Jennings extremely affordable even after an impressive season in Oakland. The Raiders have a ton of money to spend and have previously stated their desire to re-sign Jennings. Even at 29, he still has plenty of tread on his tires.
