Stallworth Agrees to Deal with Browns

The Cleveland Browns added depth to their receiver corps on Saturday by adding six-year veteran Donte Stallworth. Here's what we know... keep an eye on ASK THE INSIDERS for further updates as we get them!

 

Lane Adkins told OBR subscribers this morning that, barring things heading south, that WR Donte Stallworth was going to sign a contract with the Cleveland Browns. Things didn't head south, and now Stallworth will add depth to the Browns wide receiver corps.

FoxSports.com is reporting that Stallworth has signed a contract with the Cleveland Browns that includes $10 million in guaranteed money.

The addition of Stallworth adds an additional threat to the Browns group of receivers, which has been badly needed as 2007 demonstrated that neither Tim Carter or Travis Wilson appeared to be developing into the third receiver option that the Browns needed. WR/KR Josh Cribbs continued to display potential, but the team appeared to be concerned about conserving to focus on special teams.

Stallworth will help stretch the field and will be taken more seriously than Carter, which should help to open up TE Kellen Winslow underneath.As the 2007 season continued, opposing teams increasingly rolled coverage to Braylon Edwards and TE Kellen Winslow.

The additional receiving threat will help to open up the already-potent Browns offensive attack.  

At the same time, Stallworth's contract should be relatively team-friendly.  The six-year veteran found himself well down on the depth chart in New England, having lost his starting job to WR Jabar Gaffney during the season.

Stay tuned to the OBR for more details as events continue to unfold!
