NFL | F. Mitchell claims hes being blackballed

Mark Eckel, of the Trenton Times, reports free agent WR Freddie Mitchell (Chiefs) is still waiting to get back in the league and believes he is being blackballed, but does not believe Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid is a suspect. Mitchell said, "I don't want to say I'm being blackballed, and I know it's not Andy Reid. But somebody is blackballing me. There has to be something going on we don't know about." Mitchell admits his health was a problem last year and said he is working out with Dallas Cowboys WR Terrell Owens in Atlanta. Mitchell doesn't understand why he can't land a job with one of the 32 NFL teams and added, "I mean, you look at my numbers, and they weren't that great. But you need to look further. Check out the percentage of passes I caught compared to the number thrown to me. I guarantee you I rank with the best in the league."
