Khalif Mitchell is not happy with his recent trade from the BC Lions.

According to a report in the Vancouver Province, the All-Star defensive tackle – now property of the Toronto Argonauts – had some choice words for Lions GM Wally Buono.

The 27-year-old said Buono failed to return his calls leading up to the trade and that he once told Buono if he was ever traded, the Lions would have to get a new offensive line to contain him as an opponent.

According to the report, Mitchell would prefer to play for the Calgary Stampeders, and while he said he doesn't want to burn a bridge in Toronto, he is looking to get released by the team.

Mitchell was traded from the Lions to the Argonauts in exchange for DE Adrian Awasom and the rights to a negotiation list player.

Mitchell was named a CFL All-Star in 2011 before re-signing with the Lions amid NFL interest. Last year the East Carolina product had 15 tackles and two sacks.

The Argonauts visit the Lions in Week 2.
