Falcons signed WR Carlton Mitchell.
It's been over two years since we'd last heard from Mitchell. He hasn't appeared in a game since catching three balls for 31 yards across 11 games for the Browns back in 2011. Now 27, the former sixth-round pick has good size (6'3/215) and speed (4.41 forty) but faces an uphill battle to make it to final cuts. Jun 18 - 3:30 PM

Bucs signed WR Carlton Mitchell.

A sixth-round pick of the Browns in 2010, Mitchell has three catches for 31 yards in 16 career games. He's a longshot to stick on the Bucs' final roster.

Jaguars waived WR Carlton Mitchell and re-signed FB Will Ta'ufo'ou from the practice squad.

Mitchell was just signed on Wednesday but was the lowest in the receiving pecking order. Ta'ufo'ou was waived this past week, but the team needs him back with FB Greg Jones still out with a thigh injury.

Jaguars signed WR Carlton Mitchell.

A 2010 sixth-round pick of the Browns, Mitchell has three career catches in 16 games. He'll be depth with Laurent Robinson (concussions) landing on injured reserve. Look for Kevin Elliot and Michael Spurlock to act as the No. 3 wideout behind starters Justin Blackmon and Cecil Shorts.

Browns waived WR Carlton Mitchell, OL Jake Anderson, OL Matt Cleveland, DB Emmanuel Davis, LB JoJo Dickson, P Spencer Lanning, WR Bert Reed, WR Jermaine Saffold, and WR Owen Spencer.

Cleveland is down to 80 players, meaning they need to cut five more before tomorrow's deadline. Mitchell has a nice mix of size/speed, but hasn't emerged after being drafting in the sixth round back in 2010. His fate was sealed when the team added Josh Gordon in July.

Browns WR Carlton Mitchell has "barely practiced" because of an undisclosed leg injury.

The injury held Mitchell out of Cleveland's second preseason game after he caught just one pass for 33 yards in the opener. Already on the roster bubble, Mitchell's injury has likely sealed his Browns fate.

Browns WR Carlton Mitchell is a roster longshot following the addition of supplemental pick Josh Gordon.

The top five spots on the depth chart figure to be taken by Greg Little, Mohamed Massaquoi, Josh Cribbs, Gordon and fourth-rounder Travis Benjamin. If the Browns keep six receivers, slot candidates Jordan Norwood and Josh Cooper will be the favorites. It's safe to cut bait on Mitchell even in deep Dynasty leagues.

ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi says WR Carlton Mitchell "looked great" during OTAs.

Grossi listed Mitchell as a player who "might surprise" at this year's training camp. After back-to-back underwhelming seasons, the 2010 sixth-round pick is squarely on the roster bubble. He figures to compete with Josh Cooper and Jordan Norwood for one or two roster spots.
Sun, Jun 17, 2012 09:44:00 AM

ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi feels that WR Carlton Mitchell's roster spot is in jeopardy this offseason.

Impressed by his size (6'3/215) and speed (4.41-4.49 forty-yard dash), the Browns drafted Mitchell in the sixth round back in 2010. Two years later, he has yet to emerge. The Browns are sure to add talent to the wide receiver position via this week's draft, and the coaching staff is looking for more consistency from Mitchell.

Browns WR Carlton Mitchell is expected to be active for Sunday's game against the 49ers.

The speedy Mitchell will take the game-day roster spot of Mohamed Massaquoi (concussion). He'll be used as a situational deep threat for a few snaps.
Thu, Oct 27, 2011 08:19:00 AM

Browns WR Carlton Mitchell (finger) resumed practicing Sunday.

Out two weeks following finger surgery, Mitchell missed a chance to take advantage of Mohamed Massaquoi's absence. He'll be no higher than fifth on the depth chart if he makes the final roster.
Sun, Aug 28, 2011 03:38:00 PM

Browns WR Carlton Mitchell will be out a "few weeks" after undergoing finger surgery on Friday.

Previously, the Browns had only ruled Mitchell out for their preseason opener. A favorite of the new coaching staff, Mitchell's roster spot shouldn't be in danger, but he's not going to open the season with a role in the receiver corps.

Browns WR Carlton Mitchell underwent surgery on his finger on Friday and will miss at least Saturday's preseason game.

No word on the severity of the injury or a timetable for when Mitchell will return. Last year's sixth-round pick went without a catch in five games as a rookie.

The Browns front office reportedly likes WR Carlton Mitchell "a lot."

Last year's sixth-rounder went without a catch in just five games as a rookie. Physically gifted but raw coming into the league, Mitchell will need to show improved hands and route running this summer to earn a role as the Browns' situational deep threat.
Sun, Jul 10, 2011 05:21:00 PM

Browns GM Tom Heckert and coach Pat Shurmur have indicated that they are high on WR Carlton Mitchell.

Mitchell was a sixth-round pick last season and was active just five times even though the Browns' starting receivers were anemic. While Mitchell certainly has good size at 6'4/212, he's a longshot for a real impact. The Browns are expected to add talent to the receiver position early in the draft.
