  • Per Aaron Wilson, in 2019, if Mitchell is still on the roster by the third day of the league year, then all $2.5 million of his base salary for that season will become fully guaranteed (note: before the third day of that league year, the $1 million is guaranteed for injury).
  • For every game that Mitchell is active with the Browns from 2019-2021, he will earn a $25,000 roster bonus, up to $400,000 per year. He also has $1 million escalators for 2019 and 2020.

In terms of average per year ($3.33 million), Mitchell is the 45th-highest paid cornerback in the NFL. If Cleveland wants to cut him after this season, they would carry a dead cap hit of $1.33 million in 2019.
