ASHBURN, Va. (AP) -The Washington Redskins on Tuesday signed receiver Anthony Mix, reuniting quarterback Jason Campbell with one of his former Auburn teammates.
Mix becomes the seventh receiver on the Redskins roster in a season in which the team has struggled to find the right combination of wideouts due to injuries and disappointing performances.
An undrafted free agent out of college, Mix spent last season on the Giants' practice squad. He began this season on New York's active roster and played in four games with three receptions for 39 yards before being released and re-signed to the practice squad.
Mix caught 19 passes for 294 yards and three touchdowns during his junior year at Auburn, when Campbell was a senior. At 6-foot-5, he is 4 inches taller than any other Redskins receivers.
To make room for Mix, the Redskins released offensive lineman Rick DeMulling.
Also, the team released Burl Toler from the practice squad and signed offensive lineman Calvin Armstrong to it.
