The Minnesota Vikings continued to amass future draft picks on Tuesday by trading end Jayme Mitchell to the Cleveland Browns.
An NFL source confirmed the trade, which brought the Vikings a late-round pick in the 2012 draft, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
The Vikings previously received a fifth-round pick in 2011 and a conditional seventh-rounder in 2012 in the trade that sent quarterback Sage Rosenfels and running back Darius Reynaud to the New York Giants.
Mitchell, 26, had been with the Vikings since 2006, when he missed the cut as an undrafted free agent out of Mississippi but was elevated from the practice squad after two weeks.
He was one of the Vikings' preseason standouts this year and was one of 10 defensive linemen to make the 53-man roster. He got in on a sack in the opener at New Orleans but played only seven snaps in that game and three the following week against Miami, then was inactive Sept. 26 against Detroit.
