"I have a great relationship with that staff, and I also met their new tight ends coach, Reno Ferri," Armstrong stated. "Coach Ferri is a great guy and he's from my high school, so he knows where I came from. He knows what type of player and person I am."

"They are going to play me at any of the three linebacker spots, and they see me gaining 25-30 pounds," Armstrong said. "They said they have no plans to redshirt me. They want me to work out hard and come in ready to go."
