Sports Junkies: Armstrong Ready To Rebound in ’12
More From The Sports Junkies
Sports Fan Insider
Redskins receiver Anthony Armstrong joined the Junkies on Monday on his way to minicamp, and told the show he’s looking to put the 2011 season behind him.
Armstrong battled injuries for a good portion of the season, and finished with only 7 catches on the year after grabbing 44 for 871 in 2010.
“It was extremely frustrating. You had to kind of fall into a new role and that’s the just the way things went for me last year,” said the 29-year-old Armstrong.
“It’s definitely a lesson learned. You have to find a way to carve out a niche into the offense and basically make it so you get put back in there and get more action…All in all, I was upset I couldn’t help the team the way I wanted to in the way I felt I was able to.”
Lurch asked Armstrong how he felt about the team signing Pierre Garcon and Josh Morgan this off-season and Armstrong told the show he feels like he has something to prove to the coaches and that he can be a top 4 receiver on the Redskins.
“I still feel I can contribute and make my way into the rotation. It’s going go be a little bit different than what the other guys can offer and I got to take advantage of the opportunities that come my way.”
