Ravens Sign Donte Stallworth

By on February 17, 2010 in

The Baltimore Ravens just recently acquired wide receiver Donte Stallworth following the termination of his contract with the Cleveland Browns. The one-year deal will provide the seven year veteran with $900,000 and another $300,000 in incentives.

Stallworth’s previous long-term deal with Cleveland closed after NFL commissioner Roger Goodell lifted his year suspension. In March of 2009 he was arrested for killing a pedestrian while driving under the influence. The Ravens organization is now prepared to welcome Stallworth for a second chance.

“We’ve given a lot of thought to this and we’ve done extensive research into Donte’ beyond football,” said Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome. “He made a huge mistake. There’s no doubt about that…But, we’ve signed him because we want to get better, and we think he has a chance to help us. We worked him out and it’s obvious he is working hard to be effective.”
