[Kansas City.com] Around the same time the Chiefs said goodbye to Johnnie Morton on Thursday, another receiver made plans to visit Kansas City.
Freddie Mitchell, an outspoken former Eagle who nicknamed himself “FredEx,” will work out for the Chiefs next week. President and general manager Carl Peterson confirmed Mitchell’s visit late Thursday and said the Chiefs will do some bargain hunting in the coming weeks, specifically at receiver, but would sign someone only if they could get him on the cheap.
Mitchell might be in that category: He has been looking for work for nearly a month after being cut by Philadelphia.
“I guess I’m interested in seeing him come in and work out to see why he failed,” Peterson said. “Because he hasn’t been able to be as productive as Philadelphia wished that he was. There has been something missing there. Can you find that and ignite it? Possibly.”
Peterson said the Chiefs planned to bring in at least one other receiver.
