Linebacker Keith Mitchell signed with the Houston Texans on Saturday. Terms weren't disclosed. Mitchell was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2000 with the New Orleans Saints. He was released by the Saints this offseason, starting in 61 of 78 games with New Orleans over the past five seasons.
He had 97 tackles, two sacks, and a fumble recovery last year. The 6' 2", 245 pounder joined the Saints in 1997 as an unsigned free agent out of Texas A&M.
