Armstead arrived in town Sunday

New Patriots defensive lineman Armond Armstead was spending time at his alma mater, Elk Grove High School in California, on Friday when the Sacramento Bee caught up with him.

Joe Davidson of the Bee notes that Armstead was scheduled to travel to Foxborough on Sunday.

Writes Davidson: More than 15 NFL teams inquired about bringing in Armstead for a workout, and he signed a three-year deal with the Patriots. Armstead has been instructed by his new bosses not to discuss his NFL status. He did offer this: "I'm doing great."
