I think we all smelled this coming ... and the stench was Armstrong's play on the field.
Miami Dolphins release receiver Anthony Armstronghttp://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/miam ... 5290.story
The Miami Dolphins released Anthony Armstrong on Tuesday, trimming the receiver unit to create a vacancy on the 53-man roster.
Armstrong was inactive for last Sunday's 30-9 win over the New York Jets because he was leapfrogged on the game-day roster by veteran Jabar Gaffney, who caught one pass for 30-yards.
The Dolphins claimed Armstrong off the waiver wire on the eve of the regular season's start back in September after the Redskins made him one of the team's final training camp cuts.
Armstrong, who was on the Dolphins' practice squad back in 2008, only caught three passes for 12 yards during his second stint with the team.
During his two months with the Dolphins Armstrong was slowed by a hamstring injury, and a source say the coaches were "let down" by his inability to get open deep.
The Dolphins presently have five receivers (Brian Hartline, Davone Bess, Gaffney, Marlon Moore and rookie Rishard Matthews) on the 53-man roster, and two (Jeff Fuller and Brian Tyms) on the practice squad.
Armstrong, a former Arena Football lague standout who has caught 54 passes for 986 and five touchdowns in his three NFL seasons, became expendable because he doesn't have a significant special teams role.
