Cowboys coach Jason Garrett is impressed by new receiver Anthony Armstrong’s knowledge of the game.
But he’s probably headed for mainly special teams duty this week as he aims for his first action with the Cowboys. The former Redskins and Dolphins receiver has played in 34 games in three years, catching 54 passes for 986 yards and five touchdowns. The speedster and former Arena League player has an 18.3 yards per catch career average.
“He’s a smart guy. He’s clearly played a lot in a couple of different systems, so he seems to understand what we’re trying to do on offense,” Garrett said Thursday at his press conference at Valley Ranch. “He’s been a good special teams player in the league so far, so we’re trying to do some things to give him a chance in there.”
Armstrong has one kickoff return, a 28-yarder with the Redskins last year against the Jets.
