Old friend Quintin Mikell has a new home. He’ll be playing for the Carolina Panthers. That reunites him with Ron Rivera and Sean McDermott. Rivera was with Mikell for a short time in Philly, but McDermott coached him for years.
I know some fans would have liked to have seen the Eagles bring Mikell back, but age has caught up with him. The Panthers lost S Haruki Nakamura to IR and Mikell can step in as a backup for them. I’m sure he’ll have familiarity with the system.
Mikell came into the league as a UDFA in 2003. He has had a terrific career and is one of those guys who makes the NFL look good. He’s a credit to the game of football, on and off the field.
