Freddie Mitchell Warns Kevin Kolb About Andy Reid

Former Eagles wide receiver Freddie Mitchell visited with Howard Eskin and Ike Reese in Philadelphia on WIP where he shared some advice for Kevin Kolb when asked about Andy Reid texting Kolb that he would look out for Kolb’s best interest.

“Yeah, OK. Believe that if you want, Kevin. Believe that if you want. Hey, I’ll tell you what, Andy Reid, I love him to death. He’s like my father and whatever else, but I’m gonna keep it real. Andy is going to do what is best for the Philadelphia Eagles. …I tried when I was going on after we lost the Super Bowl (XXXIX) or whatever else. I went in there and I did not want to go to the media or whatever else I said, ‘Hey, Coach Reid, I had problems with Donovan McNabb.

“You know I can’t eat off of 12 catches a year. I need more catches. I’m doing all the things with the blocking and whatever else to make it happen. I need more catches. Donovan will not throw me the ball.’ Andy Reid was like ‘OK, Fred, well just don’t tell nobody. You don’t have to come to this next minicamp. We’re going to try to … I know a couple of teams and we’re going to try to trade you.’ At the end of the day what he tried to do was he tried to put a price tag on me that nobody was even going to touch.

“When they found out that they wasn’t going to touch me, he released me, and then the blackball began with all kinds of dirt saying I was a cancer to the team. I talk too much and everything else. It’s funny because you never heard a teammate complain about me. You never heard that or whatever else, but he put the cancer (comment) on. Kevin Kolb do not think them guys or anybody in the NFL is your friend. The only friend that you have is your agent and if you’re a left- or right-handed quarterback is your arm. That’s it. Them guys at the end of the day they are going to go and save their job, save their butt, and go out and do what’s best for the Philadelphia Eagles. You need to do what you need to do.”

    freddie mitchell didnt deserve the ball in his hands because when he did have it he couldnt do nothing with it…he is such a cry baby…even worse than T.O. in my opinion. Atlesat T.O. made plays…Freddie mitchell is living off of one catch 4th and 26. What a crybaby….he wasnt black balled from other teams…. even other teams will take a crybaby if they produce…aks dallas…the raiders…mitchell just stunk…
