Stallworth agrees to terms with Redskins

Receiver Donte’ Stallworth is leaving Baltimore.  But he’s not going far.

A league source tells us that Stallworth has agreed to terms with the Washington Redskins.

Stallworth was suspended for all of the 2009 season after pleading guilty to felony DUI manslaughter.  He has played for the Saints, Patriots, Eagles, Browns, and Ravens.

He contributed nearly 700 receiving yards to the Patriots 16-0 season in 2007.

UPDATE:  As an astute Twitter user points out, current Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett drafted Stallworth in 2002 with the Saints.  Surely, Haslett had some input in this one.

  1. Can’t believe this guy still has a job. Is he going for the record of most teams played for? You’d figure these GMs would be smart enough to know this guy is a turd and offers nothing by now.

  2. The Redskins need to worry less about who is catching the ball and more about who is throwing it.

  3. Sadly though…….he pulled a hamstring signing the contract, and will be out til mid november, when the skins are 3-9…….

  4. Better be careful when he signs that contract. He could get a nasty papercut and end up on IR.

  5. I assume he got $27 million guaranteed. Or am I confusing the Redskins with the Raiders?

  6. Another crafty, smart move by ShannyAllen…..unlike JJ signing “Leonard Davis 2.0” Doug “Turnstile” Free to a contract worth 5x his actual skill value. Nice work Skins’ FO!

    This further pushes us up, and the rest of the world down.

    This FA season has been a breath of fresh air.

  7. Unless he regained his old speed from 2007, Stallworth will be cut by September 11th…this is Larry Johnson, Willie Parker 2.0

  8. When was the last time this guy had a relevant season? I mean what does he offer? Every single off season he’s in the news and I’m sure the 4 letter as well as 4 networks will mention him as a part of the Skins offense yet he will do absolutely nothing just like he did absolutely nothing in Baltimore and just like he did absolutely nothing in Cleveland and just like he did absolutely nothing in New England. This guy gets the most hype I have ever seen from one semi decent season like 5 years ago.

  9. Who needs sound offensive lineman or a solid defensive players that fit our scheme? Lets play a little pitch and catch with Beck and Stallworth. While we’re at it, let’s see what Tony Banks is up to. Sigh

  10. While they’re at it, they should go after Kevin Curtis. That dude actually would be an upgrade for them.

  11. If Dan Snyder ever needed to write a resume (he won’t), he would need to omit the bullet that states “consistently procured top notch receiving corps for a winning organization” from said resume.

    Who were those 2 turds they drafted a few years back? Santana Moss only resigned because it was A) probably more money than he was worth (another forte of Snyder), and B) a place he knew he’d be the clear cut #1 without having to uproot his family.

  12. why would they sign someone with the exact same skill set as Santana Moss? The only thing that could make this deal worse is if we gave up a draft pick to get him.

  13. Good luck Stallworth, sorry that Cam Cameron’s definition of “deep threat” equaled end arounds for you last year. A receiver finishing the season with more than twice the amount of end arounds compared to actual catches, pathetic playcalling last year…

  14. Overreact much? It’s a one-year deal. Value signing to see if he can do anything. At this point Stallworth is just a camp body. He’s not even a lock to make the team. Low risk move by Washington. I don’t see the problem here.

  15. Everyone is just hating on the skins, we still don’t know what john beck can do but that defense is gonna be top 10 if they can get another DT/NT and everyone is gonna be eating their word if they can somehow , just somehow sneak in as a wildcard team. it can happen , there’s turnarounds every year. HTTR!!!

  16. I’m a 10-year Redskins season ticket holder, something I can freely admit. Anonymously.

    The Redskins are embarrassing themselves (again) this free agency period. While Cofield was a good signing, Stallworth is a joke. Santana Moss as a #1 WR is a joke. I bet there is a least one parking lot attendant at FedEx Field that could make the team at WR.

    Oh, and John Beck? He’s a joke too. For all of you that guzzle Snyder’s Kool-Aid, consider this: Ozzie Newsome thought so much of Beck that he traded him for DOUG DUTCH. Who? Exactly.

    When we’re talking personnel, I’d bet everything I own that Newsome is a far better talent evaluator than Shanahan/Snyder/Allen.

  17. i wouldn’t pencil him on the roster just yet. They may bring him in and for competition and end up cutting him in training camp. I think the skins would be better off with one of the rookies taking his roster spot.

  18. The Redskins are in rebuilding mode. Still, I don’t see the problem with bringing a veteran receiver into camp. I’m sure they didn’t pay him much… I doubt he’ll make the team.
    Also, what’s wrong with John Beck? What other options are there? It’s obvious they didn’t like anyone in the draft, so why should we be looking around the league for another washed up veteran QB who would need to learn a new system. It just seems obvious that they’re making a low-risk gamble, considering the 2012 QB class seems to be rich, so if J. Beck is who you all think he is… the answer should be in the draft.
    Bottom line, the ‘skins are rebuilding and putting plenty of good pieces together. We’ve got to be happy with adding Kerrigan, Cofield, and Atogwe (on Defense) thus far. Also, as far as receiver, we obviously need to hope Hankerson was a steal.

  19. What the hell, just make sure Haynesworth picks him up for practice….him and Bruce Allen came to terms over a few cold ones downtown…..

  20. Shannahan is truly living up to his reputation when it comes to evaluating talent/personnel moves. There’s a reason that Denver fired him guys.

  21. Great……. another “problem” on a team with a million pre existing probelms.

    What other occupation gladly hires and pays millions to ex cons, murderers, and dog killers?
