Patriots work out DL Armstead - New England Patriots Blog - ESPN Boston Pats worked out Armond Alstead. He was an interesting prospect last year. Good USC DL in a nice 3-4 DE package. He had some heart condition and was prohibited from playing his senior year, and went undrafted. He claims a heart attack due to the notorious painkiller Toradol. Apparently had a nice season in the CFL and could be a very nice prospect for the Pats D without costing a draft pick. I'd be very interested, and sort of surprised he is available.
