LB Kawika Mitchell has asked for his release and could get his wish as soon as Friday from the Buffalo Bills.
After placing Mitchell on injured reserve with a foot injury, reports are that the Bills are working out an injury settlement that would allow Mitchell to play for another team once healthy. Mitchell believes he can play this season.
Mitchell was the subject of some controversy this week after openly questioning the Bills’ decision to waive quarterback Trent Edwards. Mitchell tweeted his feelings after news broke Monday.
KawikaMitchell – Wow. Bills let Trent Edwards go today. I know he wasn’t starting but…? Huh 27
KawikaMitchell – Not sure why buffalobills.com titled their story on Trent “Trent’s Record”. JP’s record was worse. And tension in the locker was a reason??
KawikaMitchell – I definitely like Fitz at QB but it’s key to have a backup with experience. Sure there’s a plan behind this. What do u guys think?
That can’t be good for business, right there.
UPDATE: Friday afternoon. The Bills have released Mitchell.
