Receiver Added to the Mix

Jasno is in the midst of an interview, so I'll tell you this bit of news:
The Redskins have signed wide receiver Anthony Mix, a familiar face for quarterback Jason Campbell from their days at Auburn. As a junior in 2004, Mix played in 13 games, starting four with Campbell, and caught 19 passes for 294 yards and three touchdowns. In his senior season, he caught 23 passes for 288 yards and two touchdowns. Overall, he played in 49 games, making 11 starts, and caught 76 passes for 1,010 yards and seven touchdowns. He grew up in Alabama, was undrafted in 2004 and most recently played for the NY Gints.
The Redskins released offensive lineman Rick DeMulling and wide receiver Burl Toler (from the practice squad). They replaced Toler on the practice squad with offensive lineman Calvin Armstrong.
Astute observers that you are, you'll note the team is carrying six receiver. The good news is that the Mix kid is big -- 6-5, 235. He can also play special teams, of course, and figures to do a lot of blocking in the jumbo package (a lot of the hitting that James Thrash did).
The departure of DeMulling would seem to signal optimism that Randy Thomas will be back in two or three weeks.
