Seahawks, DT Earl Mitchell Agree To Deal

After a methodical approach to defensive line upgrades this offseason, the Seahawks moved quickly this week. Jarran Reed‘s suspension prompted the team to revisit Earl Mitchell, who agreed to terms Wednesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL.com tweets.

Mitchell was one of a few defensive tackles to visit Seattle this offseason, making his trip in March. The team passed at that point and did the same after Corey Liuget paid a visit in April. The Seahawks opted for Al Woods, who joined Liuget on that visit. Now, the team — the only one connected to Mitchell this offseason — will employ both Woods and Mitchell.

News of Reed’s six-game ban led the Seahawks to pursue outside help, and Mitchell will join Woods, Poona FordQuinton Jefferson and Jamie Meder as key Seattle interior linemen. Mitchell, 31, has started for three teams in a nine-year career. Most recently, he worked as a first-stringer for the 49ers, joining their crew of first-round defensive line investments. Mitchell has started 66 games for the Texans, Dolphins and 49ers.

After failing to find a trade partner, the 49ers released Mitchell just before free agency. He spent four seasons in Houston, three in Miami and will likely serve as a lower-cost option for a Seahawks team that will be without Reed (10.5 sacks in 2018) for six games.

In addition to the Mitchell signing, Seattle also signed WR Daniel Williams. To make room, the club waived RB Marcelias Sutton and CB Derrek Thomas.

Jets Cut Jeremy Langford, 3 Others

Jeremy Langford‘s four-plus months as a New York Jet may be over after the team made the decision to waive the running back on Friday. Newsday’s Calvin Watkins tweets the Jets also cut quarterback Joel Stave, wide receiver Daniel Williams and running back Jahad Thomas.

Langford landed with the Jets as a practice squad player in December, and the team kept him via reserve/futures contract in January. Matt Forte‘s former backup in Chicago, Langford visited the Giants and Dolphins in November before catching on with the Jets. But his career has not been the same since the Bears made him a then-surprising cut prior to last season.

A former Chicago fourth-rounder in 2015, Langford has not played in a game since the 2016 season. He saw steady work behind Forte in 2015, receiving 148 carries and turning six of those into touchdowns, but observed Jordan Howard usurp him a year later. He’ll now venture back to waivers.

The Jets also signed Stave to a reserve/futures deal in January. Both he and Thomas signed with the team’s practice squad in December as well.
