Various reports have confirmed that the Miami Dolphins are currently in talks with the Washington Redskins to acquire wide receiver Anthony Armstrong. Armstrong spent the 2008 season on the Dolphins' practice squad, and was waived prior to the 2009 season before being claimed by the Redskins.

The trade talks are thought to include running back Steve Slaton heading from Miami to Washington, D.C. Slaton was fighting with Marcus Thigpen for a roster spot in a deep Miami backfield. The team will start Reggie Bush, and already has Daniel Thomas and Lamar Miller as backups. Thigpen worked as the team's only kick returner in Wednesday's preseason game, and was thought to have the advantage over Slaton for the 53-man roster.

Armstrong played in 15 games, starting 11, for Washington in 2010, with 44 receptions for 871 yards (19.8 yards per reception average), and three touchdowns. He dealt with injuries throughout last year, only catching seven passes for 103 yards (14.7 yards per reception), along with two touchdowns.
