[Kansas City.com] Maybe Freddie Mitchell should have asked for a different number. The newly acquired receiver showed up for Sunday’s workout wearing No. 80, which hasn’t exactly been a charmed jersey in June.
First, it was Johnnie Morton’s number. He was cut on June 2. Then free-agent receiver Az-Zahir Hakim wore the number Wednesday after he agreed to a deal with the Chiefs. The next day, Hakim had second thoughts and was gone.
But Mitchell promises to stick around, and he stood on the sidelines and watched the final day of minicamp. After the workout, Vermeil said Mitchell will have a lot of competition. He said that Samie Parker has looked good enough to possibly be the No. 2 receiver, and that Richard Smith and some other young receivers also have been competitive.
“I’ve liked what I’ve seen from both of the kids from (NFL Europe),” Vermeil said. “Jeris McIntyre – he made a catch over there today, a big-time catch. And (John) Booth made one the other day.”
“We’ve got Mitchell here, and Craphonso (Thorpe) has really improved. We’re going to have more people who can run and catch than we’ve ever had.”
