Buccaneers sign receiver Carlton Mitchell, formerly of USF

David Richard-US PRESSWIRE

The Bucs add another player.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed USF wide receiver Carlton Mitchell, per Adam Caplan. Caplan actually said that the Buccaneers had announced that move -- but so far he's the only one actually noting that confirmed. The Buccaneers had one open roster spot, and last week saw receiver Steve Smith retire from football. Mitchell was originally a sixth-round draft pick for the Cleveland Browns in 2010 out of USF, having put up 105 catches for 1,648 yards and 9 touchdowns in his college career.

He wasn't so successful in Cleveland, though, catching just 3 passes for 31 yards in two years and being out of the NFL in 2012, with the exception of one week with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Mitchell will likely compete with Eric Page, Tim Wright, Terriun Crump, Jheranie Boyd, David Douglas, Jerry Johnson, Chris Owusu and Tiquan Underwood for a roster spot. So, more competition at receiver, then.
