Interesting article in that you have the OC and the WR coach touting Armstrong's potential, but you have the head coach implying that he needs to get busy on special teams.
Quote:
Young receivers such as Sloan Thomas, Kendrick Starling and Albert Johnson have impressed at times during offseason workouts, and they could work themselves into contention. But because he is not a starter, Armstrong also will be competing with players from other positions hoping to use special teams as their ticket to a roster spot.

"We know Derick can catch the ball," Texans coach Dom Capers said. "The biggest thing is what phases and how much he can contribute on special teams. You can't play five or 10 plays of offense and no special teams and get activated."
If a couple of these young WRs shine on special teams, Palmer will have to do some convincing to Capers to keep Armstrong on the active roster.
