The Redskins and free-agent receiver Donte’ Stallworth have agreed to a one-year contract, according to a ProFootballTalk.com report, which has since been confirmed by several national outlets.
Meanwhile, receiver Santonio Holmes has agreed to a 5-year contract extension with the New York Jets, according to several New York and national reports. The NFL Network reported earlier this month that Holmes would be Washington’s top free-agent target. It’s unknown if the Redskins made him an offer.
Stallworth, 30, comes to the Redskins from Baltimore, where he caught only two passes for 82 yards last season. They’re his only two catches since he served a 24-day prison sentence in 2009 for DUI manslaughter. Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron limit his use a year ago.
As it stands, the Redskins’ receiving corps consists of Santana Moss, Anthony Armstrong, rookie third-rounder Leonard Hankerson and Stallworth, among others.
The New Orleans Saints drafted Stallworth (6-0, 220) in 2002 when current Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett was their head coach.
In other news, negotiations between the Redskins and first-round draft pick Ryan Kerrigan are expected to begin in earnest today.
