After four inconsistent seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=phi), can "Fred-Ex" suddenly deliver for a Kansas City Chiefs (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=kan) team seeking help at wide receiver following the release of Johnnie Morton (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?statsId=2876) earlier this week?
Chiefs officials will attempt to answer that question about former Philadelphia wideout Freddie Mitchell (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?statsId=5472), released by the Eagles on May 6, when they bring him in next week for an interview and workout. It is believed to be the first visit for Mitchell since his release, although agent Tom Condon has fielded preliminary inquires from other clubs as well.
"He's definitely going to be playing somewhere [in 2005], and we're going through the process of determining where the best situation might be," Condon said recently. "He needs to get to a place where he can get on the field and re-establish himself." Personally, I think that Kansas City would be much better off if they picked up Koren Robinson instead of Freddie Mitchell. But than again... It's little known fact, but Freddie Mitchell has the best hands of any player who has ever played in the NFL... If you don't believe it, just ask him.
