Anthony Armstrong Is Angry Washington Redskins Drafted Three Receivers

OK, so he's not angry in the "I hate playing here" sense, but Armstrong did admit over the course of the Redskins' three-day players-only workout that he developed a bit of a chip on his shoulder after seeing the Redskins take Leonard Hankerson, Niles Paul and Aldrick Robinson in the 2011 NFL Draft. Via John Keim of the Washington Examiner:

↵↵"When they drafted three I was like, 'What the hell?'?" said Armstrong, who caught 44 passes and averaged 19.8 yards a catch in his first season. "I was mad. I was like, 'Shoot, what are you trying to say?' Why did you draft three? Don't you have faith in me?"

Truth be told, Armstrong is fine. It's guys like Terrence Austin, Brandon Banks and Roydell Williams that should really be concerned. But hey, Anthony, anything you need to find motivation to continue to work your butt off is fine by us. Would it help you if we chanted "YOU STINK" over and over again? Just let me know.
