Hey, if Freddie Mitchell gets cut by the Chiefs, maybe the Eagles can sign him! Just kidding. I think. In all seriousness, Dick Vermeil made it clear that the reason Mitchell might not make the roster is because he declined to have arthroscopic surgery on his knee late last month. The surgery would've kept FredEx out for a few weeks, but as it stands, he still can't cut and only recently began running at full speed. For a guy with a history of underperforming, this seems like a curious decision.

Thanks a lot, Dak Prescott. Now more people will think the fourth round is still a gold mine for quarterbacks, but the data says otherwise. The update to our quarterback draft study for 1994-2016 shows little has changed: finding a good QB is really hard.
