Browns DE Jayme Mitchell has agreed to a two-year deal to return to the club, he told PFW Friday.
Mitchell said the "direction of the (Browns') program" and the interest they showed in him were factors in his decision. Mitchell will play left defensive end in the Browns' new 4-3 scheme, he said.
The 6-6, 285-pound Mitchell didn't appear in a game with the Browns after Cleveland acquired him via trade in October. He had played his entire career in a 4-3 scheme with Minnesota before being dealt to the Browns.
Mitchell, 27, has notched five sacks. He is entering his sixth NFL season.
