Report: Free-Agent Wide Receiver Donte Stallworth Returns To Patriots

Tuesday March 20th, 2012

Good news comes in threes for the New England Patriots' receiving corps -- after coming to terms with free-agent wide receivers Brandon Lloyd and Anthony Gonzalez over the weekend, the Pats are now signing Donte Stallworth as well, reports Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston.

This is Stallworth's second stint in New England -- the 31-year-old wideout was also a member of the 2007 team that went 18-0 but then lost Super Bowl XLII. Stallworth had 46 receptions for 697 yards and three touchdowns that season. Stallworth spent the 2008 season with the Cleveland Browns; he was suspended for all of 2009 after he pled guilty to DUI and manslaughter. He played for the Baltimore Ravens in 2010 and the Washington Redskins in 2011. All told, he's amassed 320 catches for 4,774 yards and 34 touchdowns in his nine-year NFL career.
