Despite the lack of big numbers so far this preseason, Armstrong has two things working for him. His special team play and his experience. The fourth year wideout out of West Texas A&M showcased his special teams talents by recording two tackles in the Hall of Fame game. He also showed up late in last weekends’ preseason game in Oakland as part of the “hands” team. After batting the ball out of bounds during an on-side kick, which resulted in a penalty and re-kick, Armstrong showcased his experience by coming right back to make the on-side catch. He also returned a kick-off for 22 yards. In a group of inexperienced rookies and first year players,  Armstrong’s’ headiness and special teams versatility may be the deciding factors in granting him that final roster spot.
