The Cleveland Browns have been extremely active in all facets of the off-season thus far, making three big trades just before free agency hit and then signing some solid players to add depth and talent to a roster devoid of those two things. Wednesday at 4 pm is the first day free agents can officially sign with their new teams and the Browns have made their list of signings a little longer today.
According to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Cleveland is signing former Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Terrance Mitchell to a three-year deal.
Former Chiefs’ CB Terrance Mitchell intends to sign a 3-year, $12 million deal with the Cleveland Browns, per source.

Mitchell has played four NFL seasons and has spent time with the Chicago Bears, Dallas Cowboys, and most recently the Kansas City Chiefs. He’s appeared in thirty games, starting eleven of those contests. In those games, he has a career total of five interceptions and seventy-four tackles.
The 2017 season was by far the twenty-five year old’s best campaign in his young career. Mitchell played in a career-high fifteen games for Kansas City and started a career-high nine games. He also set career-highs in interceptions with four and tackles with forty-seven. It was a strong showing for Mitchell and he really elevated his game when called upon, hence the multi-year deal the Browns just inked him to.
