Roughriders sign DB Tevin Mitchel

Defensive back Tevin Mitchel is headed across the country.

Mitchel signed a deal with the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Friday after spending last season with the Hamilton Ticats.

He played in just in two games last year, registering one special teams tackle.

The 27-year-old was originally selected in the sixth round by the Washington Redskins in the 2015 NFL Draft and spent time the Redskins, Indianapolis Colts, and Oakland Raiders.

The Arkansas native played four seasons at the University of Arkansas recording 157 tackles, four interceptions for 19 yards, one touchdown, and one fumble recovery. Mitchel had his best season as a senior where he was tied for a team lead in interceptions and second pass breakups.

Mitchel was ranked third among SEC freshman and was named an SEC All-American team in his rookie season.
