WR Stallworth Says He’d Like to Play for the Fins

Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post reports free agent wide receiver Donte Stallworth who lives in South Florida, said on Dan LeBatard’s show on 790theticket that he would enjoy the opportunity to play for the Dolphins.

Stallworth, who played for the Ravens last season, says that he’s ready to move on after an up and down season with the AFC North club.

“Yeah, there’s mixed feelings,” Stallworth told the Carroll County Times last week. “The organization was nothing but great to me. I appreciate the opportunity they gave me. The guys were great and the fans welcomed me. They tell me all the time they hope things work out for me and that I would come back. From the foot injury standpoint, it definitely derailed a lot of things that I was looking forward to doing.”

Stallworth broke his foot in an August 28th preseason game and didn’t make his Ravens debut until October. By that point, the team had signed veteran receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh, relegating Stallworth to a reserve role. Stallworth finished the season with just two catches for 82 yards and five rushes for 45 yards.

“We picked up T.J. and he played really well and I was hoping that maybe at some time I would get an opportunity to do what I feel like I can do,” Stallworth said. “I didn’t really get that chance for whatever reason, but I still have a lot left in the tank.”

The Dolphins could use help at the WR spot, and if he comes cheap, there’s no reason not to take a chance on Stallworth.
