Kawika Mitchell asks Bills to release him

Out of frustration with the Buffalo Bills' front office, linebacker Kawika Mitchell has asked for his release and could get his wish as soon as Friday.

The Bills placed Mitchell on injured reserve with a foot injury, but ESPN's Adam Schefter reports they are working out an injury settlement that would allow Mitchell to play for another team once healthy. Mitchell believes he can play this season.

Mitchell might get cut four days after openly questioning the Bills' decision to waive quarterback Trent Edwards a week after losing the job to Ryan Fitzpatrick. Mitchell fired off some tweets after news broke Monday.

  1. Kawika Mitchell KawikaMitchell Wow. Bills let Trent Edwards go today. I know he wasn't starting but...? Huh
  2. Kawika Mitchell KawikaMitchell Not sure why buffalobills.com titled their story on Trent "Trent's Record". JP's record was worse. And tension in the locker was a reason??
  3. Kawika Mitchell KawikaMitchell I definitely like Fitz at QB but it's key to have a backup with experience. Sure there's a plan behind this. What do u guys think?

That wasn't the first time Mitchell tweeted his displeasure with the Bills over a personnel move. He also blasted them for claiming guard Richie Incognito off waivers last year.
