Anthony Armstrong to the Miami Dolphins?


 

Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald is reporting that the Miami Dolphins are engaging in talks for a potential trade with the Washington Redskins.

http://miamiherald.typepad.com/dolphins_in_depth/2012/08/dolphins-talking-trade-for-anthony-armstrong.html

 

The Miami Dolphins are in dire need of a wide receiver – one of the Redskins’ strong points. Washington, on the other hand, is in dire need of a tailback to tote the rock – one of Miami’s strong points. In the proposed trade, Miami would receive Wide Receiver Anthony Armstrong in exchange for Running Back Steve Slaton.

 

Slaton, in his second year with Miami, is seen as an expendable piece on offense. The Dolphins have Reggie Bush, Daniel Thomas, Lamar Miller and former CFL player – Marcus Thigpen.

 

 

If Miami can close this deal, the team will be receiving a player who has been under the radar playing in Washington for the past two seasons. Armstrong, entering his third season in the league (all with Washington), has 51 receptions for 974 yards and 5 touchdowns in his career. Standing at a small 5’11” 179 lbs. Armstrong is an ideal fit for the west coast offense new offensive coordinator, Mike Sherman has installed. The speedy Armstrong will provide a nice option for Quarterback Ryan Tannehill to create a relationship with over the next few seasons.

 

Cross your fingers and pray that Miami’s Front Office can close this deal Miami fans, Armstrong will provide a decent upgrade to a very weak receiving corp.

 

 

Keep your fins up fans!!!

    Dude, we released this guy two years ago. If it’s for Slaton, I guess we’re not that dumb.

    • TylerMcMullen

      He has upside. Yes we released him two years ago, but at the time he was not developed. He is more polished as a receiver now, and we need some of those. Not to mention, Slaton is probably going to get cut – might as well get something for him if we can. Ryan Cook was going to be cut and the ‘phins traded Cook away to Dallas for a seventh round pick. Thanks for the read and the comment, man!

    Get whatever value you can, whilst you can. I say give Matt Moore a chance to start elsewhere and get something back for him. David Garrard will be all good after a few games into the season and Pat Devlin could use some work, anyway. Let’s face it, we peobably aren’t sniffing a Super Bowl this year. It’s all about getting some weapons and protection for Tannahill to work worth, give him a good season, learn the NFL game, gain confidence. Keep racking up those picks for next season’s draft. If we can land a few good receivers before game 1, maybe a guard, we’d be in decent shape.

      Could use a reliable corner, too…

    • TylerMcMullen

      Exactly what I believe, man! If we can get anything for Moore, take it. Garrard and Devlin will be fine as the back up qb’s. We won’t compete this year. That’s just wishful thinking. We are in a rebuild type of mode even if the new regime doesn’t want to admit it. Keep stock piling picks! Thanks man!
