The Cowboys have brought back receiver Anthony Armstrong a week after releasing him. Dallas waived him March 27, the same day they renegotiated the contract of backup quarterback Kyle Orton, to make room for the signings of safety Will Allen and linebacker Justin Durant.
Armstrong, a Carrollton Newman Smith product, visited the Giants earlier this week but opted to return to the Cowboys on a one-year, $630,000 deal.
The Cowboys first signed him Nov. 26, and he played in one game before being released Dec. 22 to make room for Ronald Leary to be called up to the 53-player roster. The Cowboys re-signed Armstrong in January.
Armstrong, 30, also played in five games with the Dolphins last season, and he was with the Jaguars. He had 44 catches for 871 yards and three touchdowns for the Redskins in 2010, making just 10 catches for 115 yards and two touchdowns since, none with the Cowboys.
The Cowboys are $4.47 million under the $123 million salary cap.
