Former Penn State Football wide receiver Mitchell Tinsley had a strong preseason for the Washington Commanders, and was handsomely rewarded for his efforts.
According to ESPN’s John Keim, Tinsley has made the Washington Commanders’ 53-man roster after signing as an undrafted free agent this offseason.
Tinsley impressed this preseason with six catches for 129 yards and a touchdown on his way to make the final roster in Washington. Tinsley spent one year at Penn State after transferring from Western Kentucky in 2022. In 2022, Tinsley caught 51 passes for 577 yards and five touchdowns for Penn State.
In 2021 at Western Kentucky, Tinsley caught 87 passes for 1402 yards and 14 touchdowns. Tinsley ended his career posting a reception in 39-straight games.
In Washington, Tinsley joins a wide receiver room that includes former Penn State standout Jahan Dotson, the Commander’s first-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.
WR Mitchell Tinsley has made the 53-man roster, per source. Quite a journey for him as a UDFA; good hands and adept at making contested catches. Didn’t want to risk exposing him to waivers.
