The Baltimore Ravens, desperate for receivers for young star quarterback Joe Flacco, have signed free-agent wideout Donte’ Stallworth, who sat out the 2009 season after being convicted of vehicular homicide in Miami.
Stallworth, 30, will immediately compete for playing time on a team with an uncertain future at receiver.
Stallworth has been working out intensively in Miami since the accident and his controversial 24-day jail sentence (he also reported made an out-of-court settlement exceeding $3 million with the family of the man who was killed in the accident). Recently, he said he ran three 40-yard dashes clocked in the 4.3-second range. A 2002 first-round pick of the Saints, he hasn’t had a top season since he caught 70 passes with seven touchdowns in 2005 for New Orleans.
