So it's worth up to $4 million, and not $4 million flat. It's a much more realistic number considering DMC's recent production.

In theory, it's a good deal for the Raiders, but a change of scenery would have done both sides well.

Mitchell, 27 in June, had a number of teams hot on his trail. The Steelers are replacing an aging Ryan Clark with a young, hard hitter in Mitchell at free safety next to Troy Polamalu. Mitchell is coming off a career-year, and it'll be interesting to see if he was a product of the Panthers' stout front seven. The talent on the defensive line in Pittsburgh isn't comparable. Mitchell can cover and play the run.

The Bucs are viewed as the heavy favorites to sign the former Bengal, so it's quite possible he doesn't leave Tampa. With the tackle market gutted in the first hour of free agency, Collins is the top option remaining.
