The ending that Miami Dolphins WR Anthony Armstrong dreaded occured less than 24 hours after finding out that he had made the team. Today, he was cut to make room for WR Brandon London.
Armstrong 25 could be added to the Phins 8 man practice squad should he clear waivers. London, formerly of the NY Giants was waived as part of the G-Men’s cut down to 53. The UMass prospect signed as a free agent with NY last season but was on their practice squad until February.
Considered a good prospect, it will be interesting to see what Miami does with him as he will likely only be a 5th WR and on the surface it appears that Armstrong gave the team at least a little more.
IN OTHER NEWS, the Phins claimed offensive guard Andy Allerman off waivers from the New Orleans Saints one day after his release. Many in N.O. thought that Allerman would be a lock for the Saints staff. The New England Patriots and the NY Jets had also put in claims for the lineman. According to at least one report, Allerman has a mean streak about him on the field, a 3rd round pick by the Saints last season, Allerman was an Akron product who transferred from Pitt where he was a DE…probably wanted to get away from Dave Wannstedt so he is at least smart.
Pro Football Prospectus had Allerman ranked as one of their top 25 prospects.
The Dolphins However, were not done there with the lineman that is, as they picked up monster Center/Guard 6-7 318 pounder Nate Garner, out of Arkansas, the big will add some beef to the depth of the line.
The Dolphins will need to cut one more play today to make room for Gardner as they currently sit at 54.
