Washington Redskins to release Donte Stallworth

Jul 30, 2013; Richmond, VA, USA; Washington Redskins wide receiver Donte Stallworth jogs out onto the practice field

According to NFL.com’s Albert Breer, the Washington Redskins are set to part ways with wide receiver Donte Stallworth. In the third preseason game, which is the dress rehearsal for the NFL’s regular season Stallworth caught zero passes but was targeted 3 times.

In the first preseason game Stall worth caught 2 passes for 33 yards and was targeted 4 times. In the second preseason game he wasn’t targeted at all.

Stallworth was held back by a hamstring injury that limited his ability to practice this summer. Last year with the New England Patriots he only played one game in an injury hampered season.

The Redskins wide receiver corp seems to be full and deep not providing much room for Donte Stallworth to remain on the roster. Josh Morgan and Pierre Garcon are slated to start. The rest of their depth chart will likely be filled with Santana Moss, Leonard Hankerson and Aldrick Robinson.

Rotoworld suggets that the New York Jets could be interested in the wide receiver. But at 33 years old with 42 catches over the past 5 seasons, it could be the end of the road.
