The Redskins also released veteran wide receiver Donte Stallworth, a person with knowledge of the situation said. Stallworth had been hampered by hamstring strains off and on during the preseason. He appeared in two preseason games. The Redskins valued his experience, but he was at a crowded position behind Pierre Garcon, Joshua Morgan, Santana Moss, Leonard Hankerson, and Aldrick Robinson.

When the Redskins re-signed Stallworth this past summer, the team said it wished it could have signed him last season, but he went to New England instead.
