Redskins dump Donte’ Stallworth

Getty Images

The non-rebuilding rebuilding process in Washington continues.

Receiver Donte’ Stallworth, a one-time first-round pick who has floated around the league with so-so results, joined the Redskins not long after the lockout ended.  Now, the Redskins have decided to move on.

According to Mike Jones of the Washington Post, the Redskins have cut Stallworth.  But this wasn’t a Brian Robiskie roster-spot-at-another-position move.  The Redskins dumped Donte’ to sign another receiver.

Appearing in only four games, Stallworth had five catches for 46 yards with the Redskins.

Per Jones, David Anderson will replace Stallworth.  Anderson played for the Texans during Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan’s time there as an assistant coach.  Which means that Anderson’s arrival is the result of nepotism with a dash of cronyism.

    The Pat’s should dump Ocho-Sinkhole and sign Donte again.

    Oh great we are going to get yet another player that Kid Shamahan swears by. Rex and Beck weren’t enough, now we are taking other players?

    ” Which means that Anderson’s arrival is the result of nepotism with a dash of cronyism.”

    Nepotism, cronyism, cynisism…

    As if he’s the first coord to bring in players from his old team, that you know…know the system? Maybe Donte couldn’t pick it up and he wanted someone that knew the offense? Nah….

    Can you say, “Redskin String Dance”.

    Watch out! Here come the Redskins!!

  7. achap39 says: Nov 8, 2011 12:16 PM

    Didn’t even know Stallworth was still in the league.

  8. blackqbwhiterb says: Nov 8, 2011 12:16 PM

    David Anderson? Never heard of him, hope he’s good, doubt it if he’s available in week 9….then again, what’s the downside???

  9. pistolsmoke says: Nov 8, 2011 12:17 PM

    The Redskins had Donte Stallworth??

  10. greenpacker says: Nov 8, 2011 12:17 PM

    they shouldve traded him to the devil for a slice of chocolate cake

  11. icanspeel says: Nov 8, 2011 12:18 PM

    I didn’t even realize he was on the Redskins

  12. earthtopft says: Nov 8, 2011 12:18 PM

    D. Stallworth a victim of nepotism. That’s rich.

  13. deadmanwalking47 says: Nov 8, 2011 12:23 PM

    should have never made the team.

  14. snarkzilla says: Nov 8, 2011 12:24 PM

    Yeah, he was holding John Beck back from being elite.

  15. Nevis says: Nov 8, 2011 12:28 PM

    Probably ends up in St. Louis.

    LOL, this is cute.

    You do reazlize Stallworth is a horrific receiver, right?

    that’s what happens when you run a 40 yd post and get tripped up by the invisible Father Time

  18. shackdelrio says: Nov 8, 2011 12:36 PM

    The Shanahans are inventing a new word: Ineptotism.

    So long Robin!

    David Anderson knows the system? You mean there’s a system?

    Jerry Angelo, don’t do it … stay away from the phone please!

    This guy was only so-so in New England in 2007. Hasn’t been a factor since.

  24. yeahyeahyeahbono14 says: Nov 8, 2011 12:55 PM

    Donte must’ve driven the team bus.

  25. humbleminded85 says: Nov 8, 2011 12:57 PM

    How come no skins fans are saying “HAIL” anymore?? And no more “Shanny” references??

  26. rufustfireflyjr says: Nov 8, 2011 12:58 PM

    Big whoop. Cut one benchwarmer, sign another one.

  27. pspring63 says: Nov 8, 2011 12:59 PM

    Holmgren and Shanahan, two NFL coaches in search of a bigger place in the limelight, should have stuck to coaching. Boy these two blow.

  28. 4evrnyt says: Nov 8, 2011 1:06 PM

    Titans? Rams?

  29. paul197343 says: Nov 8, 2011 1:12 PM

    T.O should go do some sit-ups in the Redskins parking lot.

  30. worldsgreatest says: Nov 8, 2011 1:18 PM

    Wow, I had high hopes for Stallworth on this team yet he couldn’t get on the feild for some reason. I would say he provided a legitimate deep threat but…that would mean Beck would have had to throw the ball more than 15 yards.

    Come on Shanahan, just start Hankerson and Paul for the rest of the season at this point. Lets see what they have.

  31. 808raiderinparadise says: Nov 8, 2011 1:27 PM

    Quick! Someone grab his keys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  32. ready4doomboom says: Nov 8, 2011 1:31 PM

    As a life long Broncos fan I SMH at Shanny these days. His build a team through FA’s and unknown players worked for a few years and since has died. He takes a lot of risk on guys with not much in return. Knock off signing turds get some talent and make the Skins good again. even though I hate them. They killed us in the Superbowl lol. David Anderson is actually not bad but yeah no starter. I hate to tell you this Skins fans but be ready for Hillis next yr.

    On another hand, draft a QB possibly Foles, or Barkley. Get that running game booming and con’t to build the D.

  33. mgscott says: Nov 8, 2011 1:33 PM

    He should be in jail anyway.

  34. nycoccet says: Nov 8, 2011 1:36 PM

    Paul1234455 that T.O. comment made leak a little.while laughing. Lol

  35. whyalwaysthehate says: Nov 8, 2011 1:39 PM

    Free Rex

  36. wingz101 says: Nov 8, 2011 1:43 PM

    Beck and Grossman are terrible. So let’s cut a wide receiver!

    I can imagine that the QB alternatives out there must be pretty awful and they have to stick with what they got, but still this seems like a team that is once again drifting into oblivion. Never thought I would see that under Shanahan.

  37. edukator4 says: Nov 8, 2011 2:10 PM

    where’s the karma police who need to mention karma every time vick has something not go 100% for him. or is it ok to kill people, but not dogs.

  38. test2402 says: Nov 8, 2011 2:16 PM

    Stay on the sidewalk.

  39. getyourownname says: Nov 8, 2011 2:25 PM

    This report is highly suspect. Why would anyone admit (1) the Skins have a system or (2) they know it?

  40. txtuff says: Nov 8, 2011 3:03 PM

    David Anderson is not flashy, not fast, but he runs solid routes and has great hands. Not saying he is a savory but he makes a decent down the line receiver. For those knocking Kile Shamahan let me tell you, the best year the Texans offensive ever had was when Kubes turned him lose in Houston and let him call all the plays. I haven’t watched any Redskins games this year but I would not blame him.

  41. richm2256 says: Nov 8, 2011 3:14 PM

    Whatever happened to that wonderful season the Redskins were supposed to be having this year?

  42. suhnum1fan says: Nov 8, 2011 3:22 PM

    Is this the same guy who kilt someone?

  43. snarkzilla says: Nov 8, 2011 3:35 PM

    >Whatever happened to that wonderful season the Redskins were supposed to be having this year?

    It got Shanatized.

  44. kinggw says: Nov 8, 2011 3:59 PM

    I know Danny won’t can both Shanahans after this year, but he can do Redskins Nation a solid and at least send Kyle packing. People are finally starting to realize that what happened in Houston wasnt because of brilliant playcalling by Shanahan but the by product of having the best receiver in the game on the roster.

  45. cadan24 says: Nov 8, 2011 4:06 PM

    “Suck for Barkley”

  46. dcfan4life says: Nov 8, 2011 4:49 PM

    Mike Sims Walker, Donte Stallworth, Randy Moss, Terrell Owens. The list goes on of receivers who had great potential or were oustanding at there position at one point but have a lot of baggage. Hope this trend continues. If your a player with issues, then your a player who should be unemployed.

  47. worldsgreatest says: Nov 8, 2011 4:51 PM

    The difference between Stallworth and any of the other people the posters here are mentioning is that he turned himself in after the incident.

    Additionally, he wasn’t out at a nightclub, and afterwards decided to get behind the wheel. He was in his home, had gone to bed, and woke up hours later. Unfortunately he decided to go to the store to get some juice or whatever, and still had alcohol in his system early in the AM.

    He reached a financial settlement outside of court with the bereaved, and took his sentence without complaint.

    He does nothing but contribute the community, donating time and money to positive causes. He did his time.

  48. rajbais says: Nov 8, 2011 5:02 PM

    I unfortunately remember an episode of ‘Jim Rome is Burning’ and Jemele Hill ACTUALLY referred to Stallworth as a “key” acquisition!!!

    I prefer washed up players like Stallworth be employed by teams rather than idiots like Jemele to be employed by TV networks!!!

  49. thatdudewiththemarauder says: Nov 8, 2011 7:48 PM

    For some odd reason, I really don’t like A. Luck. I want RG3!!! That is the type of guy we need under center.

  50. dikshuttle says: Nov 9, 2011 8:35 AM

    Shoulda dumped Banks
