Jason McAddley: professional camp fodder

Redskins signed a guy and cut a guy:

The Washington Redskins have signed wide receiver Jason McAddley, the team announced on Friday. To make room for McAddley on the roster, the Redskins released rookie running back Terry Caulley.
Terry we hardly knew you, though props for surviving one month (signed April 30th). McAddley's resume:
McAddley began his NFL career as a fifth round (149th overall) selection by the Arizona Cardinals in the 2002 Draft.

He played with Arizona for two seasons (2002-2003) and joined the Tennessee Titans in 2004.

McAddley signed with the San Francisco 49ers in 2005, playing in a career-high 12 games with two starts. He finished with seven catches for 125 yards.

And then cut by the Niners. His rookie season (2002) was his best by far, when in 9 games he scooped 25 receptions for 362 yards and one touchdown. Before you scoff at that amount, it projects to 644 yards over a 16 game season, which would make him far more productive than either Brandon Lloyd or Antwaan Randle-El last year.

Jason also lists a healthy 200 pounds at 6-2, which would make him the tallest receiver on the team (tied with a few others). He is a long shot to make the team, as he is competing with a number of guys; four receiver spots on the team are already taken by Moss, Lloyd, Randle-El, and James Thrash. That leaves 8 guys, counting McAddley, competing for the fifth and likely final receiving spot. Best of luck, Jason.
