Breaking News:

Vikings sign LB Mitchell

The SportsXchange

The Vikings announced the signing of free agent linebacker Marvin Mitchell, who played four of his first five NFL seasons with the Saints, including the 2009 team that beat the Vikings in the NFC Championship game.

Mitchell, 27, spent last season with the Vikings and has been primarily used on special teams coverage. He's started two of the 71 games in his career.

A seventh-round pick of the Saints in 2007, Mitchell began his career on the practice squad but earned a roster spot midway through his rookie season when Scott Fujita, the captain of the defense at the time, was injured.
