Mixon

Hey,

Apparantly my skins have contacted Kenny Mixon .. what can you guys tell me about him? It looks like he started 16 games for you guys last year but only managed 2 sacks. Looking at his old stuff from when he was a prospect, he was described as 'first round talent with mid-round bagage'. Did these personal issues surface at all in the NFL for him? What do you guys think of him as a player?

Decent run stopper, not as good as JT, but decent. Doesn't rush the QB well. (Which hurt JT's sack total) Misses a tackle here and there but is overall a pretty good run stopping DE. Can play a little DT but gets pushed around REALLY easily by the better Guards and Centers in the league. Just hope you don't pay him too much. He's decent though.

Nope no baggage. However it depends on the skins needs because Mixon is only a run stopping DE. If your looking for a sack guy then it would have been better to look at Bromell. If I were you I'd be praying they don't spend more then 1.4 million a season on him because he's average.

Mixon can't get any sacks, he is a good run stopper though. He isn't worth more then 800K a year in my mind.

thanks for the info, guys! I don't see him getting a big contract although we need bodies on the defensive line .. we're very thin right now .. we may be gearing towards a 3-4 although thats unknown right now.

that's a ridiculous amount for Mix unless it is all back-loaded

Mixon

is basically an irrelevant loss...it would have been o.k. to re-sign him, but we have enough run stoppers with Bowens, Chester and Gardener. Gardener is supposed to move over to LDE anyway and I would like to see more of Adenwale Ogunleye and David Bowens, maybe they will resign Bromell too...

Not a big deal, although a real waste for the Vikings, although it appears to be a two year deal and then out the door from the structure of it.
