FredEx Still Has Gas in the Tank

Enrico emails me this tip from the beach, via the Los Angeles Times’ coverage of UCLA wide receiver Brandon Breazell and his trials at the Bruins’ pro-day workout:

Watching from the sideline, along with a gathering of agents and other
spectators, was former UCLA receiver Freddie Mitchell, a first-round
pick by Philadelphia in 2001…Mitchell, 29, thinks he still has something to offer an NFL team and
said he’s confident he can make a comeback. To that end, he spent a lot
of time Thursday chatting with scouts. "Success is situational," he said. "The right coach can take an average receiver and put him in the Pro Bowl."

Freddie still blames his ‘friendship’ with Terrell Owens as the reason he was run out of town on a rail:

"Me and T.O. were the best of friends, and that hurt my relationship
with Donovan," he said, referring to Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb.
"There were issues between me and Donovan."

He’s halfway right. McNabb tends not to get along well with people who drop tons of passes and become substitute teachers in order to pick up underage girls.
