If you're not keeping up with the current whereabouts of the former People's Champ, Freddie Mitchell seems to spend quite a bit of his post-playing days responding to people on Instagram.
Today was one of those days.
You see, our pal Reuben Frank penned a piece today looking at the best and worst of the Eagles' drafts by position over the years and FredEx's name popped up as one of the worst receiver picks in recent years. Nelson Aghalor got lucky.
Here's what Roob wrote about bad WR picks:
Worst: Freddie Mitchell, 1st round, 2001
Now, this is a tough call. Mike Bellamy was a second-round pick in 1990 and never caught a pass. Kenny Jackson was the fourth pick overall in 1984 and averaged 15 catches per season as a pro. Nelson Agholor has been a massive disappointment. There was Reggie Brown in the second round in 2005, third-round failures Josh Huff, Chris T. Jones and Billy McMullen. Plenty of guys to choose from. But it has to be Freddie Mitchell, mainly because of who the Eagles bypassed to take him. On the board when the Eagles picked at No. 25 in 2001: Reggie Wayne, Steve Smith, Chad Johnson, T.J. Houshmandzadeh and Chris Chambers, for starters. Those five combined for 4,034 catches, 55,020 yards, 336 touchdown catches and 19 Pro Bowls. Freddie? He finished with 90 catches, 1,263 yards and five TDs.
Freddie found the post on social media and voiced his displeasure.
"I mean, why would they post such a negative question on here?," Freddie wrote, finding a question somewhere where there didn't seem to be one. "That's the problem, negative energy only brings negative things to the city. You change the way you think and be positive you make Philadelphia great again. All the players busted their asses to make the Eagles great."
So if I'm following, the negative energy among the media in Philly is making the Eagles bad.
