Take another free agent wide receiver off the board. This time, the Redskins are losing a pass-catcher rather than gaining a pass-catcher, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
The Patriots just agreed to a one-year deal with free-agent wide receiver Donte Stallworth.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 19, 2012
Stallworth played in 11 games for the Redskins in 2011, catching 22 passes for 309 yards and two touchdowns. He would have surely seen the writing on the wall last week after the Redskins brought in Pierre Garcon and Joshua Morgan at the start of free agency.
This will be Stallworth's second go-around with the Patriots. He played in 16 games and caught three touchdown passes for New England in 2007.
