Armstrong has bounced around the NFL since going undrafted out of Miami in 2013. After spending about a season with the Giants, the linebacker was released by New York back in October. He ended up landing in Cleveland, and he proceeded to compile six tackles in nine games with this new club.
Armstrong is only one season removed from a 2017 campaign where he collected 64 tackles, one sacks, two passes defended, and two picks in 15 games with the 49ers and Giants. He’s lacked consistency throughout his career, but some stability could help him build off that 2017 season.
The Browns could certainly use some depth at linebacker. The team is currently only rostering five ‘backers in Genard Avery, Joe Schobert, Christian Kirksey, D’Juan Hines, and Xavier Woodson-Luster. While Armstrong shouldn’t be relied on as a starter, he’ll provide the team with some solid depth in 2019.
