"I've been so excited about this evening, I started sweating about two hours ago," Mr. Mitchell told the crowd. "My clothes are soaking wet."
"That is between Jim and the Browns organization," said Mitchell, who also played for Washington. "My career was the result of being with a lot of great players like Jim Brown and a great coach in Paul Brown. When I came back here, it wasn't about beating them but proving I was worthy of playing against them."
