Redskins release WR Stallworth
Washington, DC – The Washington Redskins released wide receiver Donte Stallworth on Tuesday.
The 13th overall pick in the 2002 draft, Stallworth was used sparingly by Washington this season, recording just five catches for 46 yards through four games.
The Redskins were Stallworth's fifth team in his last five seasons after spending his first four years with the New Orleans Saints.
Stallworth missed the entire 2009 season after a year-long suspension in the wake of a DUI manslaughter charge in Florida. He served 24 days of a 30-day jail sentence and received 10 years of probation -- two years of which included house arrest -- as part of a plea agreement.
After being reinstated to the NFL, Stallworth signed with Baltimore for the 2010 season. He missed the first half of the year after suffering a broken foot in the preseason, then caught two passes for 82 yards in eight games.
The 30-year-old Tennessee product has 303 career receptions for 4,511 yards and 32 touchdowns in nine NFL seasons with New Orleans, Philadelphia, New England, Cleveland, Baltimore and Washington.
In other roster moves, the Redskins released defensive lineman Darrion Scott, tight end Dominique Byrd and cornerback Brandyn Thompson, and signed defensive end Kentwan Balmer, cornerback D.J. Johnson and wide receiver David Anderson.
