Redskins Workout Armstrong, Door Left Open For Future Deal
LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — The Washington Redskins brought Anthony Armstrong back to Ashburn for a workout on Thursday, but the wide receiver left the team’s facility without a deal.
Armstrong, 31, finished second to Santana Moss in receiving yards and touchdowns for the Redskins in 2010. He recorded 44 catches for 871 yards, and three touchdowns that year with 15 of the receptions going for 20 yards or longer.
The workout Thursday went well and there is a possibility Washington will re-sign the receiver at some point in the future, according to a source.
Armstrong was released by the Redskins prior to the 2012 season and has since spent time with the Miami Dolphins, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Dallas Cowboys.
Washington also reportedly auditioned Austin Collie on Thursday.
Both receivers would be battling for a spot on the roster already filled with Moss, DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garçon, Andre Roberts, Leonard Hankerson, and Aldrick Robinson.
