ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that the Redskins have agreed on a one-year contract with free agent wide receiver Donte Stallworth.
The 30-year-old receiver played the 2010 season in Baltimore. He played in eight games without registering a start, hauling in just two passes for 82 yards. He was suspended for the entire 2009 season for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy after he was charged with DUI manslaughter in April of 2009.
Stallworth has posted one 70-catch season and has compiled four 600-yard seasons in eight years in the NFL. He’s started just 16 games since 2007 and won’t be breaking the bank with his new deal in Washington.
The Redskins will give him a chance to earn a roster spot in training camp. Santana Moss, re-signed to a three-year deal on Tuesday, is the only other proven receiver on the Redskins’ roster. Anthony Armstrong is coming off an impressive 871-yard rookie campaign, but he is the most accomplished wide-out on the team’s roster other than the two players who were signed in the past two days.
Washington will be the Redskins’ fifth team in his last five active seasons.
