Donte' Stallworth, New England Patriots to reunite

The New England Patriots are going back to an old friend to help fill a hole on the wide receiver depth chart. And it's not Deion Branch this time.

NFL.com's Albert Breer reported the Patriots will sign Donte' Stallworth on Tuesday, according to a source who spoke with player. Stallworth, 31, has tried out for a few teams since the Patriots cut him in August, but he hasn't been on a roster this season.

Stallworth's anticipated signing doesn't bode well for Julian Edelman, who injured his foot during Sunday's win over the Miami Dolphins. He was seen on crutches after the game. The Patriots are lacking depth after cutting Branch last month and losing practice-squad player Greg Salas to the Philadelphia Eagles on waivers.

Stallworth was with the Patriots for their 2007 run to the Super Bowl, and this could give him one last chance to be part of a championship team.

Re: Donte' Stallworth, New England Patriots to reunite

I'm not that familiar with his career in New Orleans, but I do remember him entering the league as a Saint, and for that reason, he'll always be a Saint in my eyes, for better or worse, no matter who he whores himself out to.

He was Traded to the Eagles for Simmeau in 2005 before Payton arrived.

Stallworth's career with the Saints was with Aaron Brooks as his QB...

Need anymore? LOL

Re: Donte' Stallworth, New England Patriots to reunite

I think they signed Stallworth over Branch to stretch opposing Ds more for the TEs and the resurgent running game this winter. Welker also works the mid. I think Lloyd is more a decoy so the Pats can dink & dunk all day. Ds can ignore Stallworth and Lloyd at their own peril. Brady will see it.

Well, at least Stallworth picked up a game check to see him through the holidays. He did catch a bomb though
