The Redskins landed their fourth receiver this off-season and this time it’s a veteran – not Santonio Holmes.
After drafting three receivers earlier this April and confirming they will re-sign Santana Moss this Friday, Washington has agreed to a one-year contract with free agent Donte Stallworth.
Stallworth, who was suspended for the entire 2009 season after pleading guilty to felony DUI manslaughter, came back in 2010 and recorded two catches in eight games for the Baltimore Ravens. Although Stallworth broke his foot in the 2010 preseason, he returned and eventually went on to win the Ravens’ Ed Block Courage Award.
Regarding the deal with the Redskins, Stallworth told Scout.com:
“It will be fun. I know Santana Moss, too. It will be a good chance for me to do some things. It’s a good opportunity I’m definitely excited for the opportunity. The coaches talked to be, both Shanahans. “I’m hearing from both Shanahans that I would have an opportunity to work my way in and do some good things with the offense. I’m not asking for a handout. I just want to show what I can do.”
Do you think the Stallworth/Moss combo will help the Redskins‘ offense?
