ECU's Mitchell signs with San Francisco

ECU defensive tackle Khalif Mitchell signed a free-agent contract with the San Francisco 49ers on Friday.

Mitchell, who began his career at UNC, missed seven games in 2008 with a foot injury. He'll best remembered in the Triangle for his goal-line tackle (and forced fumble) of T.A. McLendon in UNC's 30-24 win over N.C. State in 2005.
