Ten year NFL veteran Donte Stallworth has been signed by the Washington Redskins, this according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter:

And on cue, Redskins have signed wide receiver Donte Stallworth.

Ironically enough, just minutes before finding out the information, Schefter was speaking with Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan who said they expected to have him signed at some point today:

Redskins HC Mike Shanahan on WR Donte Stallworth: “We’ll likely have him signed before he leaves the building.”

Stallworth spent last season with the wide receiver hungry New England Patriots, though only played in one game, catching a 63 yard pass. Prior to that, Stallworth played for the Redskins in 2011 where he caught 22 balls in 11 games, good for 309 yards and two touchdowns.

The 13th overall pick in the 2002 NFL Draft has struggled since the 2009 accident where Stallworth struck and killed a pedestrian in Miami Beach. Prior to that, the former Tennessee product was a touchdown machine for the New Orleans Saints, posting 23 trips to the end zone in just 33 games as a starter for the Saints – 56 games with the Saints overall.
