Argos sign DB Mitchell White

Defensive back Mitchell White has signed on with the Toronto Argonauts, per sources.

The 27-year-old signed with the Eagles this past off-season, getting $17,500 guaranteed, but he was waived by Philadelphia in August.

He played two seasons with the Alouettes and one with the Redblacks, winning a Grey Cup championship in 2016. White has suited up in 42 CFL games, recorded 97 tackles and four interceptions, three of those picks came with Ottawa last year.

Mitchell was brought to the CFL by Argos general manager Jim Popp when the pair were in Montreal. He played collegiately at Popp’s alma mater Michigan State.

A starting calibre cover man, Mitchell joins Alden Darby, Qudarius Ford, Brandon Harris, Cassius Vaughn on the roster and the Argos hope to have Akwasi Owusu-Ansah back off the one-game injured list soon. Johnny Sears Jr. and Josh Mitchell are on the six-game injured list while Khalid Wooten resides on the practice roster.
