Cowboys finally land Anthony Armstrong
On Monday, Armstrong was added to the roster after working out for the team last week.
“We knew him coming out and we’ve competed against him,” coach Jason Garrett said. “He’s fast and as a receiver he can contribute to special teams. He’s tough and also can be a guy that can just help your football team in a lot of different ways.”
With Miles Austin suffering a hip flexor/low back strain against Washington and Kevin Ogletree working his way back from a concussion, the Cowboys felt the need for a more veteran receiver than Andre Holmes, who was cut last week.
Holmes could be brought back to the practice squad, but that’s quite a fall from grace for a receiver that owner and general manager Jerry Jones was praising as a No. 3 receiver candidate in the offseason.
In parts of three seasons with Washington and Miami, Armstrong has 54 catches for 986 yards and five touchdowns in his career.
