I has now been confirmed by Stallworth’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, that Donte Stallworth has signed with the Patriots. The deal is 6 years, and worth $32 million. It’s a gamble with Donte’s off the field issues, but hopefully it will play off. Here is the source:
Stallworth visited the New England Patriots on Tuesday and left after agreeing to a six-year, $32 million contract. The deal was confirmed to Comcast SportsNet by the office of Drew Rosenhaus, Stallworth’s agent.
In 12 games last season, his first with the Eagles after arriving in a trade with the Saints, Stallworth had 38 receptions for 725 yards and five touchdowns. He missed four games with a hamstring injury.
Last August, the Eagles sent linebacker Mark Simoneau and a conditional pick to New Orleans for Stallworth. Had the Eagles re-signed Stallworth, they would have had to send New Orleans a fourth-round pick. They reportedly made an offer to Stallworth on Monday.
Also on Monday, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that Stallworth is a participant in the NFL’s substance abuse program. The team would not comment on the matter because of league’s confidentiality rules, and no further details have become available.
