Soul eyeing Freddie Mitchell

The Soul roster, like most Arena Football League rosters, is filled with mostly unrecognizable names. That would change very quickly if team president Ron Jaworski gets his way. Jaworski last night said he is trying to reach out to former Eagles wide receiver Freddie Mitchell to gauge any potential interest Mitchell might have in joining the Soul. Mitchell, the Eagles' first-round pick in 2001, was released by the Birds in May and was cut late in summer training camp by the Kansas City Chiefs. He suffered a knee injury during training camp.

Adding Mitchell would take some serious salary-cap maneuvering by the Soul and would require the flamboyant wideout to check his ego at the training room door. After all, he'd have to play defense, as well. "Oh, absolutely," Jaworski said. "That's what separates the guys in this game."

Jaworski hoped to get contact information from Scott Cohen, of the Eagles' scouting staff, at the Soul's scrimmage last night against the New York Dragons. The Soul open the season Jan. 29 when Tampa Bay visits the Wachovia Center. Before his release, Mitchell was due to make $540,000 in 2005 and $600,000 in 2006. The highest-paid player on the Soul is quarterback Tony Graziani, who will make $165,000 in base salary this season. The Soul already has reached the $1.85 million salary cap, so some players would have to be dumped to add Mitchell. "I don't even know if he wants to play or how much he'd want," Jaworski said. "But I want to talk to him."
