TORONTO -- Khalif Mitchell's days with the Toronto Argonauts are over.

Monday, the defensive tackle was released by the Argos after just one season of play with the Double Blue. Mitchell was acquired by the Boatmen in a trade with the Lions last April.

The 2013 season saw Mitchell appear in 16 games, registering 32 tackles and a team-best five sacks. He also collected one fumble recovery.

Prior to joining the Argos, Mitchell spent three seasons with the Lions, collecting 54 tackles and eight sacks.

From what i hear he wanted to explore NFL opportunities. So this brings up the question: Is the CFL just a feeder league for the NFL? If a contract doesn't mean anything then why not just make it official?

Seems to me that the Argos are the only team that regularly releases players still under contract for "explore NFL opportunities"! I believe this is the 2nd time this offseason they've done that. Regardless, Mitchell won't be missed by most CFL fans!

The only surprise was that it wasn't done sooner. Wish we left him unprotected instead of Jon Williams.

He was unprotected. He just wasn't wanted.
