Mystery Candidate For Donte Stallworth Emerges

New, comments

[Update 5:20 PM: PFT reports that the mystery team is the Lions]

The Cleveland Browns parted ways with Donte Stallworth on Monday, which was no surprise. Stallworth was involved in a DUI accident that took a man's life, resulting in a year long suspension. In addition to that, he was due a $1 million bonus in March along with a $2.775 million base salary.

His agent Drew Rosenhaus tells the Boston Globe that he'll workout for an unnamed team on Wednesday.

"He is the best shape he’s been in since I’ve been representing him," Rosenhaus told the Globe. "His reinstatement was a very smooth process. He’s developed a very good rapport with Roger Goodell. We are very pleased with the amount of teams interested. Everything in the past is behind him, and he is excited to move forward."

It's possible Rosenhaus is bluffing to draw interest in his client.

Roger Goodell told me and a group of reporters last week that Stallworth would be reinstated following the Super Bowl. Monday was the first day teams could make offseason cuts.

Stallworth has been previously connected to Chiefs GM Scott Pioli when the New England Patriots signed him in March of 2007.

The Chiefs are expected to look for receiver help in the draft or free agency, so it's possible that they're one of the interested teams.

Stallworth is expected to sign a low, one year deal assuming if there is interest.

We'll update when/if the mystery team is named.
