Redskins agree to terms with Donte Stallworth

Pro Football Talk is reporting that the Redskins have agreed to terms with free agent wide receiver Donte Stallworth. The agreement comes a day after the team re-signed veteran Santana Moss.

Stallworth was out of football for all of 2009 — suspended after pleading guilty to felony DUI manslaughter — and he recorded two catches in eight games for the Baltimore Ravens last season. Stallworth broke his foot in the preseason, but returned and went on to win the Ravens’ Ed Block Courage Award.

Drafted by now-Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett and the New Orleans Saints in 2002, Stallworth will give the Redskins another veteran receiver. Aside from Moss, the closest thing to a proven threat is second-year wideout Anthony Armstrong, who last season recorded 871 receiving yards and three touchdown catches.

For his career, Stallworth has 298 catches for 4,465 yards and 32 touchdowns in nine seasons.

Fourth-year receiver Malcolm Kelly is coming off of a year on injured reserve and has yet to live up to expectations. Second-year wideouts Brandon Banks and Terrence Austin also are on the roster. The team also drafted receivers Leonard Hankerson, Niles Paul and Aldrick Robinson in April.
