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