Redskins Release Wide Receiver Donte Stallworth

Tuesday November 8th, 2011

The Washington Redskins have released Donte Stallworth for new addition David Anderson, the Washington Post reports.

Washington and Anderson negotiated a deal that was solidified Monday night.  The sixth-year wide receiver played under current offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan with the Houston Texans.  Last year with Houston in 12 games, he had 11 receptions for 117-yards overall.

With Santana Moss sidelined with a broken hand, Stallworth has not been able to fill the void the Redskins have experienced among their receiver corps.  The nine-year veteran has just five catches for 46 yards in four games this season. Anderson will support tight end Fred Davis who leads the team with 40 catches for 559 yards and two touchdowns and wide receiver Jabar Gaffney who has 31 catches for 441 yards and two touchdowns.  Rookie Leonard Hankerson has been promoted to the starting lineup as well.
