    Former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Freddie Mitchell has admitted to his role in a tax-fraud scheme.

    Mitchell pleaded guilty in federal court in Orlando, Fla., today to a single count of conspiracy to file a false claim. He faces a maximum prison sentence of 10 years and a maximum fine of $250,000.

    Prosecutors say Mitchell and two others concocted a scheme that involved filing a false tax return on behalf of another professional athlete.

    They say Mitchell told the athlete, only identified as "A.G.," that he could help him get a bigger tax refund from the IRS.
