Potter is reportedly making plans to climb Mr. Everest in the coming months.

FanHouse says: The Eagles drafted wide receiver Freddie Mitchell in the first round of the 2001 draft.  Mr. Mitchell will be “featured” on “Millionaire Matchmaker,” a show that apparently doesn’t require you to actually be a millionaire before appearing as one.

The highlight of his on-field career was being on the receiving end of Donovan McNabb’s 4th-and-26 pass during the 2003 playoffs. In general, Mitchell was known less for his pass-catching ability than he was for his wacky fashion sense and the ironic nicknames he created for himself.
