Browns waived/released WR Anthony Armstrong, RB Edwin Baker, OL Randall Harris, CB T.J. Heath, DL Cam Henderson, WR Jonathan Krause, OL Ryan Lee, LB Caleb McSurdy, OL Keavon Milton, LB Keith Pough, WR Tim Smith, OL Jeremiah Warren and TE Martell Webb.
Armstrong generated some buzz during OTAs, but that was likely due to the ex-Redskin's familiarity with the Kyle Shanahan system. Baker lost out to Dion Lewis and Isaiah Crowell. Mon, Aug 25, 2014 12:06:00 PM

Date:

Browns signed WR Anthony Armstrong, formerly of the Redskins.

Armstrong, 31, is a slightly built (5'11/180) speedster with ties to new Browns OC Kyle Shanahan from D.C. The Browns will be in trouble if at any point they're forced to lean on Armstrong for significant regular season snaps.

Free agent WR Anthony Armstrong is participating in Redskins voluntary workouts on a tryout basis.

Armstrong also worked out for the Redskins last month. Out of the league last season, Armstrong appeared in 14 games for the Redskins in 2011. He split time between three teams in 2012.

Free agent WR Anthony Armstrong worked out for the Redskins on Thursday.

Armstrong, 31, began his career with the Redskins and caught 51 passes for 974 yards and five touchdowns over 29 games from 2010-11. He was out of the league last season after playing for the Dolphins, Jaguars, and Cowboys in 2012.

Lions worked out free agent WRs Anthony Armstrong, Charles Hawkins and Lavelle Hawkins Tuesday.

None of the trio were immediately signed, suggesting that the Lions are comfortable going to battle with Calvin Johnson, Patrick Edwards (ankle) and Ryan Broyles (knees) Sunday. Even if one of these three does get signed, they'd be playing an outside role for Detroit. They wouldn't affect slot man Ryan Broyles' potential production.

Cowboys released WR Anthony Armstrong.

It's the second time in five months the Cowboys have cut Armstrong loose. Now on the wrong side of 30, Armstrong's future is dim.

Cowboys re-signed WR Anthony Armstrong.

The Cowboys dumped Armstrong last week in a salary cap move, but quickly get him back in the fold following a Tuesday visit with the Giants. He has a decent chance to crack the roster as a situational deep threat. Although Armstrong had just three catches in five games for the Dolphins last year, he posted a 44/871/3 line with the Redskins as a rookie in 2010.

Free agent WR Anthony Armstrong is visiting the Giants Tuesday.

Armstrong was a diamond in the rough as an undrafted rookie out of West Texas A&M, racking up a 44/871/3 line for the Redskins in 2010. But in the two seasons since then, he's totaled 10 catches in 19 games for the 'Skins and Dolphins. The Giants wouldn't view him as anything more than a situational deep threat.
Tue, Apr 2, 2013 12:34:00 PM

Cowboys released WR Anthony Armstrong.

Jerry Jones and company needed to free up a roster spot after signing Justin Durant and Will Allen. The move also clears $630,000 in cap space. Armstrong was released by three different teams last season, and caught just three passes in six games. He'll have to fight to survive first cuts in camp wherever he ends up.
Wed, Mar 27, 2013 01:48:00 PM

Cowboys signed WRs Anthony Armstrong, Jared Green, and Carlton Mitchell, TE Colin Cochart, OG Ray Dominguez, LS Charley Hughlett, OLB Cameron Sheffield, and OT Aderious Simmons to reserve/future contracts.

Dallas has been the NFL's most aggressive team when it comes to future signings so far. Armstrong has experience in the league with Miami and Washington. Sheffield is a former Chiefs draft pick. Dominguez has spent time in Green Bay.

Cowboys waived WR Anthony Armstrong.

Armstrong was signed in Week 13 to add depth to a wide receiver corps that was banged up at the time. He did not play a single snap for the Cowboys. The move made room for G Ron Leary, who was signed off the practice squad.
Sat, Dec 22, 2012 12:24:00 PM

Cowboys signed WR Anthony Armstrong.

With Miles Austin (hip, hamstring) and Kevin Ogletree (concussion) in doubt for Week 13, the Cowboys are scraping for depth. Armstrong has already spent time with the Redskins, Dolphins and Jags this season. He'll slide in behind the likes of Dwayne Harris and Cole Beasley.

The Cowboys are considering signing free agent WR Anthony Armstrong.

Armstrong worked out for the Cowboys on Tuesday and could be added to the active roster. His chances of being signed are increased with Miles Austin (hip) injured and Andre Holmes released.

Jaguars waived WR Anthony Armstrong.

Armstrong lasts just two weeks on the roster. He was behind the likes of Kevin Elliot and Michael Spurlock on the receiver depth chart.
Mon, Nov 12, 2012 10:53:00 AM

Jaguars claimed WR Anthony Armstrong off waivers from the Dolphins.

Armstrong will take Mike Thomas' roster spot, and perhaps his role on offense. Limited to just three catches in five games in Miami, Armstrong will make similarly little impact in Jacksonville.
