Donte Stallworth Released By Washington Redskins, According To Report

The Washington Redskins continue to alter their roster at the wide receiver position, as they have released Donte' Stallworth, according to Mike Jones of the Washington Post. The news comes after the Redskins signed former Houston Texans' wide receiver David Anderson, who used to play for the Houston Texans.

Stallworth made the team out of training camp in a mild surprise, but has caught just five passes in only four games this season. The Redskins felt he was a good influence on young receivers, but evidently believed that Anderson's knowledge of Kyle Shanahan's offense from their time together in Houston was more valuable for the team right now.

Anderson will likely be able to play due to the turf toe injury to Niles Paul, which will sideline him for a couple of weeks, coach Mike Shanahan announced in his weekly press conference on Monday.
