Former Philadelphia Eagles first round pick Freddie Mitchell has said some outlandish things during his time, but this one takes the cake.

Mitchell,who was convicted in an elaborate tax fraud scheme in which he cheated the government out of millions of dollars and is now facing 10 years, says concussions and injuries to his brain are the cause of his shady financial dealings. 

Wearing a dark suit, Mitchell, 34, a Lakeland, Fla., native, spoke Thursday in court about his health problems and of receiving numerous concussions from playing football, including during his 4 years with the Eagles. “It’s been a challenge” to admit to health problems, he said.

“I am truly sorry, and I take responsibility for my actions,” Mitchell said, his voice cracking with emotion.

Freddie is and always will be a clown.
