I think it's great. B.Mitch is one of my favorites.


I guess him and the Danny kissed and made up. Good news. He is a true Redskin.

I'm glad it's happening. B-Mitch deserves all the respect he gets from Skins fans.

I'm not sure about his inevitability as a Hall of Famer, though. I'm aware of all of his records, but I can't see him getting in before Art Monk - who also held records at the time of his retirement. No non-kicking pure special teamer has gotten in, to the best of my knowledge, so he isn't a guarantee - certainly not as soon as he is eligible, which the article implies.

I'm glad too. I think he was a good Redskin and experieanced just about all of his success as a Skin. So I'm happy to hear it!!

I think he definitely deserves serious consideration for the Hall, his yardage numbers are staggering.

It's about time the Hall started recognizing outstanding special teams contributors, and what a better way to start then with Mitchell?

I've always thought letting him go was one of the worst moves Snyder made, and it's often an overlooked mistake.

Gibbs always talks of core Redskins, well it doesn't get much more core than B-Mitch.

I'm glad he's leaving the league as a skin, but I seriously doubt he gets a real HoF bid, especially first ballot.

He'll always be a Redskin now, it's great to know that these things will be fixed with Coach Gibbs back in charge.

Redskins family is a family for life.

Can we dress him for Saturday's game?

Sign him today. He is a true Redskin and deserves one last ride with Coach Gibbs.

He is certainly the best return man the Redskins have ever had in my opinion. I would not mind it if he came back to us to help coach special teams.

I think that would be a great idea to have him coach.

If the HoF is going to start to honor special teams then the 1st guy they have to put in is Ray Guy. He's the greatest punter of all time. The list can go from there but Ray Guy has to be 1st.

Nice...BM's release was one of the Danny's first of many big mistakes. Glad to hear he will retire a skin.

I loved that B Mitch, played great for us. He also trashed talked about the Skins to. If you ever have meet him around town he is one arrogant son of a bitch. And I just don't get the value of signing someone for 1 day and having them retire. We know he played for the Skins for 10 years, what value does this serve? No one signed him this year becuase the feel he can not contribute to a team so what is the point fo signning him for one day.

The point of signing him for one day is so he can officially retire as a Redskin.
