It’s been less than a month since free agent wide receiver Donte’ Stallworth was cleared to resume football activities following a hot-air balloon incident in March that left Stallworth and with severe burns.
Now Stallworth is getting his first look from an NFL team since the incident.
According to Albert Breer of the NFL Network, the Washington Redskins will bring Stallworth in for a tryout next week during the team’s mini-camp.
Stallworth and a close friend were taking a leisurely hot-air balloon trip when the pilot attempted to land in a field. The balloon clipped power lines and shocked both Stallworth and his friend, Soleil Guerrero. The lines lit their clothes on fire and left them with severe burns.
Stallworth played in just one game last season for the New England Patriots. He caught one pass – it went for a 63-yard touchdown. Stallworth played 11 games for the Redskins in 2011. He caught 22 passes for 209 yards and two touchdowns.
