Donte’ Stallworth to get a look from the Redskins

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.

    Why would the Redskins chance all the bad publicity of signing him? Oh wait…the Redskins don’t care about bad publicity…or even stupid football moves.

    WOW….

    This time it was Stallworth that was the victim of a hit and run (fly)… (float)….

    [Insert Victims Name Here] reaching out for electrical execution …..

    In no way was Donte Stallworth J-Walking.

    Sorry but I would still be in jail if I drove drunk and hit an illegal alien J-Walker on the down slope of a bridge.

    Apparently Stallworth already reached a financial agreement with the family of the clipped power lines freeing him up to play immediately…

    The question is: can he catch a 2 yard WR screen and take it 50 yards to the house and send his QB to the Pro Bowl again?

    This guy has little left to give. Time for retirement.

    I’d welcome Dante back to the pats any day. He was always a pro with us.

    He will look great, likely make the team and then blow out his hamstring on the first O series in the first game. That is normally what happens with him.

    3rd rate wr to a 3rd rate team seems about right

    This move will solidify our championship. Pierre “my foot and heart hurts and im really a 2 wide out”Garcon. Leonard “i cant remember my last name because im irrelevant”?? Santana ” have not done anything since i was wearing green” Moss. Josh “I throw my helmet and the game. And now we get our deep threat who we now what he’s done. Only thing is I hope hes not as fast as he used to be because i get tired of watching our receivers wait on underthrown balls from RG3.

    Why does the media ignore the fact that this guy killed someone and got minimal time for it.

    This evidence of how big of a jerk T.O. is. Stallworth killed somebody and still gets a sniff from teams.
