Mike Mitchell leaving Raiders for Panthers

It looks like the Raiders are about to lose another of their restricted free agentsThis time it’s strong safety Mike Mitchell.

Here’s Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer:

And from Mitchell himself:

As Paul Gutierrez points out, Mitchell’s departure means that none of the Raiders’ burning couch of a draft class in 2009 remains on the team.

Mitchell started two games for the Raiders last season and had 41 tackles and one sack.

Terms of Michell’s contract aren’t clear. But chances are it’s more than the Raiders were willing to pay, which probably wasn’t going to be a whole lot anyway.
