Mitchell had a breakout 2013 playing for the Panthers on a one-year deal, but is unlikely to be brought back due to salary cap constraints. He appeared in all 16 games last season, finishing with 66 tackles, four interceptions, 3.5 sacks and two forced fumbles. Mitchell can play both safety positions and shouldn't have any trouble landing a multi-year deal.
ESPN.com's John Keim considers the Redskins a possible landing spot for free agent Aqib Talib.
Talib has ties to secondary coach Raheem Morris, but wouldn't be a great fit with outside corners DeAngelo Hall and David Amerson both under contract. Washington may be better suited to make a run at Captain Munnerlyn for his ability to play the slot. Talib is reportedly looking to be paid as a "top-of-the-market" corner and could command over $8 million annually.
ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports free agent Hakeem Nicks is open to playing on a one-year contract to prove his 2012 and 2013 seasons were "aberrations."
Nicks is also open to re-signing with the Giants. If he can't return to New York, Nicks wants to go to a team with a proven quarterback. Mortensen also adds that Nicks' past foot and knee injuries have been cleared and deemed 100 percent by Drs. Robert Anderson and James Andrews, respectively. Each doctor wrote a letter of recommendation for Nicks, and copies were sent to all 32 teams. Nicks has been linked to the Ravens and Patriots since the season ended.
