Ravens Sign Felon Stallworth

Posted By Lea Anderson On Feb 18 2010 @ 2:12 am In Baltimore Ravens | 1 Comment

The Ravens went to work on making their receiving corpse come alive in 2010 season by signing felon Donte Stallworth to a one year $900,000 contract.  With none of their receivers under contract, this should improve the targets for Joe Flacco.

After pleading guilty to the DUI manslaughter of Mario Reyes in 2009, Stallworth did hard time in the pen for 24 days of his 30-day sentence.*rolling eyes at the Miami justice system* Commissioner Rog' reinstated Stallworth after a one year suspension but was released by the Cleveland Browns.  Now it's time for his second chance. 

HC John Harbaugh has a history with Stallworth as they both served time in Philly.  It can be assumed that Harbaugh has an understanding of Stallworth's skill set and work ethic which probably led to the team having him workout on Tuesday. 

Limited by the “Final Eight Plan”, [1] the Ravens will be hindered in free agency.  Stallworth is currently the number one receiver, but this should change as the year progresses and changes are made to the roster.  He did his time and paid the price for his crime, but now it's time for Stallworth to do his time in the spring workouts to learn Cam Cameron's offense.
