The Minnesota Vikings enjoyed a surprising 2012 season. The team enters the offseason with higher expectations and some decisions to make.
The decisions begin with its own free agents.
Here is linebacker Marvin Mitchell.
Experience: 6 years
2012 Stats: 11 games played (1 starts), 10 tackles, 1 forced fumble.
Career Stats: 82 games played (3 starts), 129 tackles, 2 sacks, 4 passes defensed, 1 interception, 4 forced fumbles, 3 fumble recoveries.
2013 Outlook: The former Miami Dophin and New Orleans Saint has made his name on special teams. He performed well in that capacity for the Vikings last season, but not enough to warrant another contract with the purple. The Vikings have other options to fill the special teams roles. Re-signing Mitchell will not help the Vikings upgrade its linebacker group.
