Cleveland Browns cut Donte' Stallworth

The Cleveland Browns wasted no time today in releasing wide receiver Donte’ Stallworth, who was reinstated to the NFL upon the completion of the Super Bowl.

The team announced that they had terminated Stallworth’s contract in an understated item on the official web site headlined, “Browns make roster move.”

Stallworth was suspended for the entire 2009 season as a result of his DUI manslaughter conviction. He played the 2008 season for the Browns, the 2007 season for the Patriots, the 2006 season for the Eagles and the 2002 through 2005 seasons for the Saints.

Today’s transaction makes Stallworth an unrestricted free agent. It’s unknown whether any team has any interest in signing him.

    No Way! He played 2002-2005 for the eagles and 2006 for the eagles?

  2. RAJ says: Feb 8, 2010 5:46 PM

    He played for the Saints from 2002-2005 not the Eagles.

  3. Desean Maclin 1018 says: Feb 8, 2010 5:46 PM

    2002-2005 he played for the eagles. Really? I seem to remember him playing with Joe Horn

  4. ArtModellsPimp says: Feb 8, 2010 5:46 PM

    Duh…

  5. Snuff Smith says: Feb 8, 2010 5:47 PM

    Stallworth played for the Saints from 2002 to 2005, not the Eagles.
    How could you??

  6. HBOilers24 says: Feb 8, 2010 5:47 PM

    hooray

  7. Larry David says: Feb 8, 2010 5:47 PM

    Don’t they need all the help they can get at Wide Receiver?

  8. Titanman26 says: Feb 8, 2010 5:47 PM

    should be “2002 through 2005 season for the SAINTS”

  9. Snuff Smith says: Feb 8, 2010 5:48 PM

    Stallworth played for the Saints from 2002 to 2005, not the Eagles.
    How could you??

  10. WarrenMoonGOAT says: Feb 8, 2010 5:48 PM

    no team has any interest in signing him
    he was an underachiever in all aspects of life
    he was a bust in New Orleans, a bust in Philly, a bust in New England and a bust in Cleveland.

    Gloryhole and his crack staff strike again!
    Way to go morons!
    We love the way you take pride in your work.

  12. Davey Ricky says: Feb 8, 2010 5:54 PM

    Upon hearing the news, Stallworth immediatly pulled his hamstring.

  13. possessed says: Feb 8, 2010 5:58 PM

    Let me be the 500th person to point out that he played for the Saints in case you didn’t get the point from the previous 499 posts saying the same thing.

  14. brownsfn says: Feb 8, 2010 5:59 PM

    so long “killa”

  15. Philly Phan 99 says: Feb 8, 2010 6:02 PM

    he was actually decent in Philly when he wasn’t hurt, which seemed to be every other week.

  16. Slow Joe says: Feb 8, 2010 6:04 PM

    I didn’t think Stallworth “played” for anybody between 2002-2005.

  17. edgeofepic says: Feb 8, 2010 6:06 PM

    I think New England would be interested b/c right now all they have at WR is a hobbled Wes Walker and an aging dogging-it-prone Randy Moss…. and this would give Bob Kraft a much needed argument to use Obama’s stimulus funding for a pedestrian foot-bridge over Route 1 (Mass had given him the $$ but pulled it back when it went public.) The foot-bridge would of course reduce the risk of Donte running down pedestrians. Sorry, couldn’t resist.

  18. JJMADDOG says: Feb 8, 2010 6:17 PM

    He didn’t play for Cleveland either, he was on the roster and collected a paycheck, but only appeared in a handful games due to injuries, with hardly any catches. Great signing after letting Joe Jurevicious go. Hey Phil (S)Average is now consulting for the Eagles, maybe he can fly back there and hook up with the other killa.
    Word has it Braylon DROPPED him a line.
    ba da bump

  19. Chief3 says: Feb 8, 2010 6:31 PM

    Maybe one day these morons will learn you have to be a responsible citizen as well as a jock.
    Good for Cleveland for having the balls to let him go.

  20. HereThere says: Feb 8, 2010 6:39 PM

    Any team that signs this hack deserves what it gets. He serves a whole month for what he did while Plaxico rots in jail for two years…..and hurt only himself.

  21. slipkid says: Feb 8, 2010 7:37 PM

    stallworth will join forces with ookie and start the bad newz driving skewel

  22. Lost says: Feb 8, 2010 7:48 PM

    If you’re keeping score this would be Holmgren’s 2nd major mistake.

  23. ShackDeezNutz says: Feb 8, 2010 7:52 PM

    New England or the Jets could be likely destinations. Pats missed 3rd WR this season (who knew Gaffney would be missed so much?). Jets could use more options to foster the development of Sanchez.

  24. God's Own Silver and Blue says: Feb 8, 2010 8:05 PM

    Thug, murderer, miserable pudknocker. IOW, he’ll be back on the Beagles roster before you can say vehicular manslaughter.

  25. bullis says: Feb 8, 2010 8:33 PM

    Maybe Miami will sign him now.

  26. extreme469 says: Feb 8, 2010 8:53 PM

    be gone murderer…..

  27. ILuvOldLadyPorn says: Feb 8, 2010 9:07 PM

    Bengals.

    @Slow Joe
    I guess 195 catches 2800 yds and 23 TD’s in 4 seasons isn’t “playing” according to your standards. Keep in mind this is when the Saints were still the “Aints” and he had no QB. So maybe do a little research before you hate just to hate. Or is that why you are Slow Joe in the first place.
    At least your namesake does not compromise your posts….gomer.

    Didn’t he pull a Hammy behind bars?

  31. odell says: Feb 8, 2010 11:24 PM

    He’s gonna be a Bengal, in need of a receiver, always giving 2nd chances, looking for a good deal.. T.O. in stripes will never happen, sorry Chad.

  32. Tomlinson 2101 says: Feb 8, 2010 11:59 PM

    I absolutely despise the Browns but are you kidding me? I hate Stallworth but isnt the point of a NFL Franchise is to win?

  33. Tomlinson 2101 says: Feb 9, 2010 12:16 AM

    I despise the Browns but you gotta be kidding me? I hate Stallworth but isn’t the point of a NFL Franchise to win? You can not win if you trade and release your good players
    Letting Winslow and Edwards go was big mistakes. I can understand what the Brown’s were thinking with Stallworth but I can see him being a halfway decent reciever with a good QB. Now here was the Brown’s dilemna…Stallworth could be a halfway decent reciever playing with their untalented offense or he could be a halfway decent reciever playing against them.
    Before the I am critisized on here let me state this, I really don’t care. I agree he is more of a liability than potential. What I can not understand (and will never, NEVER understand) is why the Browns will not pay Josh “Pay the Man” Cribbs?!?! Without Edwards, Winslow, Lewis and now Stallworth, Cribbs is one of the few remaining the Catalyst to that offense. He has earned the right for Deion to sing his praises day-in and day-out and he deserves to be paid. He was offered 4 million less than Devin Hester and Hester did next to nothing in 2009.

  34. Adam says: Feb 9, 2010 3:48 AM

    He’ll go to the Jets (sigh), Raiders, or Bengals.

  35. HBOilers24 says: Feb 9, 2010 6:59 AM

    @ lost:
    i dont see this as a mistake by Holmgren but i’ll bite, what was Holmgren’s first mistake in Cleveland?

  36. HamBurghlar says: Feb 9, 2010 9:01 AM

    Ladies and gentleman, your next Shiatcinnati Bungle! He’d fit right in with the felons over there.. then again, so would Ray Lewis cause he got all stabby on someone…

    You are absolutely correct. To get over the hump we NEED a WR that is always hurt and isn’t that good to begin with. The fact that he’s been in prison for a year only make him better.

  38. Subpar says: Feb 9, 2010 1:24 PM

    I’m a browns fan and I wouldnt mind seeing him get resigned for very little money.
    Lost, the Browns do desperately need a WR but, what you are failing to look at is this guy was going to get BIG money if they kept him on the roster. I wouldnt be suprised if the browns grabbed him for dirt cheap now. He wasnt worth the moeny when we signed him and now that he was injured most of the season he was on the team and then didnt play all of last year he isn’t even close to worth that much. They would have been dumb to keep him.
    GoBrowns, he was in prison for 24 days I believe. He was suspended for a year. He also was a good receiver when he wasn’t hurt. His problem is though that he was hurt more than he wasnt.

    @ Tomlinson 2101:
    i know you aren’t a Browns fan by your comments so let me tell you what’s going on.
    Wislow was a good player but he got hurt a bunch and was a major pain in the ass off the field. Edwards was a whinny bastard who dropped a ton of passes. if you noticed that neither of them did anything for the teams they went to.
    Stallworth was always hurt (i think from the 1st game even) when he played in cleveland and was due much more money then he was worth (thanks savage!).
    Jamal Lewis is retiring so not sure why your saying it as if we are getting rid of him.
    Cribbs is going to get paid and he will stay in cleveland, he has even said it himself.

    I understand these players are not Larry Fitzgerald-type players but it is better than nothing, which is basically where the Browns are right now. They got Massaquoi and Harrison but outside of that, who else do you see stepping up and in the words of Santonio Holmes, “being great” next season.
    I feel for the fans of Cleveland because nobody wants likes to be losers. The Browns did get good wins against Jacksonville Pittsburgh, but that is just a single cinderblock in the foundation of a good franchise.
