Dorance Armstrong Reportedly Agrees to Contract with Commanders, Sources Confirm

SportsDorance Armstrong Reportedly Agrees to Contract with Commanders, Sources Confirm

Dorance Armstrong, a defensive end, will remain in the NFC East and rejoin Dan Quinn after agreeing to a three-year contract with the Washington Commanders that may be worth up to $45 million, sources informed ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler on Monday.

Over the last three seasons, Armstrong, 26, has recorded 21 sacks for the Dallas Cowboys defensive line, although Micah Parsons and DeMarcus Lawrence have received the majority of the attention.

Prior to joining the Commanders as their new head coach this offseason, Quinn was the Cowboys’ defensive coordinator.

Despite playing 97 fewer snaps than he did in 2022, Armstrong added 7.5 sacks to his career-high 8.5 in 2022.

After the 2021 season, Armstrong became a free agency. However, the Cowboys were able to re-sign him, this time for a two-year, $12 million contract, following Randy Gregory’s departure from a deal to join the Denver Broncos.

Armstrong was a key member of the special teams and is good against the run. He was listed as having 169 tackles, 23.5 sacks, 5 tackles for loss, 94 quarterback pressures, 4 pass breakups, 3 forced fumbles, and 5 fumble recoveries in 93 games with the Cowboys. In addition, he stopped a field goal and two punts.
