Falcons sign WR Carlton Mitchell, waive fellow WR Shane Wynn

New, comments

Mitchell tried out for the team yesterday and made a positive impression.

The Falcons have made a move to conclude minicamp, and it's another change to a receiving corps that promises to have a new look in 2015.

Mitchell, 27, is one of those size/speed receivers who has never been able to get much of a shake with NFL teams. He's bounced around a lot and has just three receptions in his entire career, but he's 6'3" and boasted 4.49 wheels coming out of college, so you can understand the appeal for Kyle Shanahan here. Mitchell will be a long shot to do much more than hang around through training camp, but maybe the Falcons can revitalize his career. They liked him enough to work him out this week, so maybe there's something to that.

Wynn was a speedy undrafted free agent who will now be looking for work elsewhere. We wish him well.

Your expectations for Mitchell?
