Seriously though, didn't see this one coming from a mile away. Didn't even realize he was available. I thought it was Houshmanzadeh that was available from the Ravens.

But this makes sense for Stallworth as far as proximity for his family, and makes total sense for the Redskins. They get a veteran, low risk, low cost WR. Much better than breaking the bank on a Holmes. We all want Austin, Hankerson, etc. to step it up but thanks to the lockout they're behind the curve so we need to temper the expectations this year.

I like this move
Totally agree. The more I think about it the more I really like this move.

...let me guess you were in favor of signing Moss though even though he's 2 years older?

Where are you hearing this. ? I'm hearing Jets are basically locking him up today. I want Holmes but can't see the jets letting him go. Rex loves him.

Re: Redskins sign WR Donte’ Stallworth to a 1 year deal

Well it's not like Hankerson, Paul, Robinson, Austin and Banks won't get a shot to show what they have in training camp and in preseason. Shanahan will give them a look and see what they've got; if they don't look promising then practice squad or peace out. Or if they beat out Stallworth, even better.

Stallworth has speed and lots of it. You can't hate that.

I like this move...but I also liked the Roydell Williams move
My enthusiasm is tempered for the rooks...I am just worried about roster spots. Keeping Stallworth is going to make us give up on someone prematurely. Everyone other then Hankerson & Moss could be out on the street from this signing. Hopefully we win some games along the way...but this is a rebuild and i don't like keeping 30 yr olds over 23 year olds unless the 30 year old is great and Stallworth has never been in that category.

Do you remember former Redskins WR Rod "50/50" Gardner? He drove fans insane with all of his drops. Personally, I can't stand dropped passes, so I don't want Braylon "50/50" Edwards.

Re: Redskins sign WR Donte’ Stallworth to a 1 year deal

I dont like having him on the roster at all. Lets not forget that he killed someone with his drunk driving and spent only 30 days in jail for it. Not that that effects his ability to catch a pass but I still dont like it.

Re: Redskins sign WR Donte’ Stallworth to a 1 year deal

Keep in mind Stallworth didn't play in 2009 because of the whole DUI thing, and last year he played in 8 games and had only 2 catches.

In 2008 he played in 11 games for the Browns and had only 10 catches.

So not only is it possible he won't make the team, I think it's quite probable he won't make the team.

I would expect to see a few WRs on the practice squad.

Well we can have 90 players in camp so that's more than usual, and it probably means we give up on someone like Roydell...or maybe Malcolm Kelly...or maybe someone like Banks or Robinson goes on the PS. Either way, i think this is less "damaging" than say bringing in Rice, Holmes, or Edwards (who incidentally is getting a bad rap in my opinion, re: drops)

Again His hands aren't as bad as people say.. He's a good WR and would be an upgrade over any one we have accept Moss
