  • Football Team's Alex Armah: Signs new deal with Washington

    Washington signed Armah to a reserve/future contract Tuesday.

    The fullback will return to Washington for another season in 2022 after joining the team partly through the 2021 season. Armah appeared in 11 games this season between the Saints and Washington, operating mostly as a special-teams option.

  • Alex Armah: Rejoins practice squad

    Armah reverted to Washington's practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

    Armah appeared in his second game of the 2021 season in Week 18 against the Giants, finishing with one tackle. He logged one snap on offense and 13 on special teams in the victory.

  • Football Team's Alex Armah: Bumped up from practice squad

    Armah was elevated from Washington's practice squad Saturday.

    Armah has appeared in 10 games this season, but just one with Washington. Starting the season with the Saints, Armah was waived Nov. 30 and signed to Washington's practice squad Dec. 2. Armah will likely provide depth in the backfield and work on special teams Sunday against the Giants.

  • Alex Armah: Back with practice squad

    Armah reverted to Washington's practice squad Wednesday.

    Armah was elevated to Washington's active roster for Week 15, as the team was thin on tight end depth. Although Armah didn't see the field, it seems that the full-back has earned the now third-string tight end role with Washington. Expect Armah to get elevated again if John Bates or Ricky Seals-Jones face any injuries.

  • Football Team's Alex Armah: Gets practice-squad call-up

    Washington elevated Armah from its practice squad prior to Tuesday's game against the Eagles.

    Though he's a fullback by trade, Armah took some reps at tight end in practice this week and could serve as the lone depth option at the position Tuesday behind John Bates in the event Ricky Seals-Jones (illness) -- who is listed as questionable -- isn't cleared to play. In nine appearances with the Saints earlier this season, Armah was deployed mostly as a blocker. He logged five carries for 21 yards and scored on a one-yard reception on his lone target across 67 snaps on offense.

  • Alex Armah: Joins Washington practice squad

    Armah signed with Washington's practice squad Thursday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

    Armah has longstanding connections with coach Ron Rivera, who was coaching the Panthers when they drafted the fullback in 2017. While he's more of a blocker than a runner, Armah could get an opportunity with the main roster if the injuries to Antonio Gibson (shin) or J.D. McKissic (concussion) keep either running back out of game action.

  • Alex Armah: Waived by Saints

    Armah was waived by the Saints on Tuesday, Katherine Terrell of The Athletic reports.

    Armah was inactive for the Saints' Week 12 31-6 loss to Buffalo via a coach's decision. He will presumably be a prime candidate to revert to the team's practice squad should he end up clearing waivers. The Saints will now opt to go without a fullback for the immediate future.

  • Saints' Alex Armah: Healthy scratch

    Armah (coach's decision) was inactive for Thursday's 31-6 loss to Buffalo.

    The fullback was a healthy scratch despite the injuries to Alvin Kamara (knee) and Mark Ingram (knee).

  • Saints' Alex Armah: Expanded offensive role

    Armah logged 16 offensive snaps but did not touch the ball during Sunday's 33-22 win over Washington.

    Armah more than doubled his previous season high in snaps but did not touch the ball. The fullback has two carries for seven yards through five games.

  • Saints' Alex Armah: Joins active roster

    Armah was signed to the Saints' active roster Friday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    Armah spent training camp with the Saints, but he was ultimately let go during the final roster cuts. However, he subsequently landed on New Orleans' practice squad and will now get a chance to see the field on the active roster. He will presumably be used primarily for special teams and blocking situations.

  • Alex Armah: Cut by New Orleans

    The Saints released Armah on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Armah appeared in all 16 regular-season games for the past three seasons with Carolina before latching on with New Orleans this offseason. His NFL experience will likely garner plenty of interest from around the league.

  • Saints' Alex Armah: Signs with NFC South foe

    Armah signed with the Saints on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Armah played 55 games for the Panthers over the past four seasons. He was mostly used in a blocking role, but he managed to score three touchdowns anyway. This signing likely means that fullback Michael Burton won't return to New Orleans. Burton averaged roughly 14 offensive snaps per game in 2020, so Armah can expect a similar role during his first season in the Big Easy.

  • Panthers' Alex Armah: Plays all 16 games

    Armah finished the 2020 season with six rushes for nine yards and five receptions on nine targets for 18 yards in 16 games.

    Armah once again served as Carolina's fullback, playing all 16 games for a third straight season. Unlike the prior two campaigns, though, Armah wasn't able to find the end zone at all, and he was featured on less than 15 percent of the Panthers' total offensive snaps. As one of the few true fullbacks in the league with experience filling an occasional offensive role, the veteran should garner interest as a free agent this offseason.

  • Panthers' Alex Armah: Secures only target

    Armah hauled in his only target during Sunday's 32-27 loss to the Broncos.

    Armah's lone catch only got back to the line of scrimmage, but it's notable that he did draw a look in the red zone for the first time since Week 6. On a less positive note, the fullback has played just seven combined offensive snaps over the last two weeks. That's his lowest usage over a two-game stretch all season.

  • Panthers' Alex Armah: Garners one target

    Armah failed to catch his lone target during Sunday's win over the Lions.

    The 26-year-old continues to see a handful of snaps per contest, and he averaged less than one touch per game. Armah has five carries for six yards and three catches for nine yards in 11 games this season.

  • Panthers' Alex Armah: Catches one pass

    Armah caught his only target for 14 yards in Sunday's 31-17 loss to the Buccaneers.

    Armah already has three touches through Carolina's first two games, as coordinator Joe Brady looks to diversify his options out of the backfield with occasional fullback usage. Although Armah's production hasn't been anything special, he at least gets rewarded for his blocking with a touch here and there. Furthermore, if tailback Christian McCaffrey, who exited late with an ankle concern Sunday, is limited going forward, Armah could stand to get a couple more looks in Week 3 versus the Chargers.

  • Panthers' Alex Armah: Rushes twice Sunday

    Armah finished with two carries for one yard in Sunday's 34-30 loss to the Raiders.

    Armah got a chance to score with a carry from the four-yard line to start the fourth quarter, but the fullback could only manage a yard up the middle. He then was trusted on a critical fourth-and-one call with under two minutes left, but he was stuffed for no gain. Although Armah is unlikely to garner more touches in upcoming weeks, it's noteworthy that his number was called in those situations, even if he failed to take advantage of them. On the bright side, he helped pave the way for another fine performance from tailback Christian McCaffrey, who found the end zone twice on the ground.

  • Panthers' Alex Armah: Scores touchdown this season

    Armah finished the 2019 season with six carries for 11 yards and a touchdown and two receptions for six yards across 16 games.

    Armah again served as Carolina's fullback this season, and though that role doesn't lend itself to much fantasy value, he was at least turned in a one-yard touchdown plunge in Week 1. The veteran remains under contract with the Panthers next season, so expect him to reprise his usual duties as a lead blocker for star running back Christian McCaffrey.
