Report: Redskins In Talks With Dolphins To Trade Anthony Armstrong For Steve Slaton

There's a rumor doing the rounds on twitter that the Washington Redskins are in talks with the Miami Dolphins to trade wide receiver Anthony Armstrong for running back Steve Slaton.

Three different Redskins beat reporters; John Kiem, Rich Campbell and Mike Jones all have tweeted about the potential deal, but nothing is confirmed as of yet.

If the deal does go through, I can't help but praise the front office. While I'm not Slaton's biggest fan (more on that in a minute), to trade a wide receiver that they don't need given the depth their already, for a running back to take Tim Hightower's spot, is a good bit of business.

The move makes sense. Slaton was the Texans running back under Kyle Shanahan during his time in Houston. He knows the system well, has had success in the system, and brings a lot of speed to the table. But he does have a history of fumbling. He has ten career fumbles, seven of which were lost. To his credit, he hasn't fumbled in three years, but he's only rushed 42 times in the last three years.

More on this story when we get it.
