Freddie Mitchell blames head injuries for criminal activities

According to Next Impulse Sports, former Eagles wide receiver Freddie Mitchell could get up to ten years in prison for tax  fraud.

In order to try and get his sentence reduced,  Mitchell thought he’d use the excuse a lot of former NFL players are using.  He claims that head injuries made him break the law.  Mitchell was even able to get the judge to watch PBS’s concussion documentary “League of Denial.”

Now of course we don’t know if head injuries made Mitchell do some really dumb things, but it does seem a bit far-fetched.
