“I just had surgery a couple months ago on my foot and just kind of got back healthy there,” he said. “It’s not official but I think it’s done.”
When asked if it was possible that he might return to the league, and possibly the Eagles, Mikell said it would have to be the right situation for him to come back. The 33-year-old, who spent eight years in Philly, played 14 games with the Panthers last season after being picked up on a one-year contract. However, the veteran suffered a right foot injury in the Divisional Round of the playoffs against the 49ers that required offseason surgery.
In eleven total seasons with the Eagles, Rams, and Panthers, Mikell played in 169 games, made 103 starts, and notches 545 tackles with 12 interceptions.
