View Full Version : Stallworth to Browns

The Browns are looking to make a run at the division this season, for sure.

Adam Schefter of NFL Network is reporting that the Cleveland Browns have signed free-agent wide receiver Donte' Stallworth.

Although terms of the deal have not been reported, Stallworth was said to be seeking a deal that would pay about $5 million a year, with about $10 million in guaranteed money. Stallworth became an unrestricted free agent when he was released by the New England Patriots just before a hefty roster bonus came due.

For the Browns, the addition of Stallworth should make their passing attack even more potent. Quarterback Derek Anderson had a good first season as the team's starter in 2007, and shortly after locking Anderson up for three more years, the Browns have now given him another weapon.

Cleveland has been one of the more active teams in the early days of the new league year, and Browns fans had better hope the team made the right calls on their veteran contracts. The Browns have traded away their first-, second- and third-round picks in this year's draft, meaning they won't get the influx of young talent that most NFL teams count on.

Say what you will about the Browns, but they are going to give us a hell of a time this season.

On the first day of NFL free agency, the Cleveland Browns first locked up quarterback Derek Anderson with a three-year deal.

On Saturday, they gave him a new target to pass to.

According to a source, Donte' Stallworth, who played last season with the New England Patriots, agreed to terms on a seven-year, $35 million contract with the Browns, $10 million of which is guaranteed.

Stallworth caught 46 passes for 697 yards and three touchdowns as part of a receving corps that included Wes Welker and Pro Bowler Randy Moss.

Stallworth's best overall season was in 2005 when he caught 70 passes for 945 yards and seven touchdowns as a member of the New Orleans Saints.

A Browns shirt with the name Stallworth is just so wrong!

Haha. I agree TeeJay.

The Browns came so close last season that they playoffs or bust this season. I guarantee you they regret trading those picks away and drafting Brady Quinn.

I realize they don't have any first day draft picks this year, but how much stock can really be put into that argument. First day players bust all the time. They have hit FA hard and made moves that make sense. The only real lose has been Bodden.

They have made big moves for the defensive front seven, resigned the QB they wanted and even bought him a new toy.

Lol - a side note here, that's four teams in 2 1/2 years for Stallworth now.

Doesn't matter who their receiver is...........Anderson can't hit the side of a barn.

Anderson can't hit the side of a barn.

Only his palm against the prison wall, as he screams 'No more Big Daddy'...."isn't it Brady's turn now"?............or am I thinking of Cinnci players?

I'm not impressed with Stallworth. That's a lot of money to give him, when you have 2other guys (Edwards and Winslow) who will want more money.

They were supposed to give us a hell of a time last season, too.

with the aquisitions the browns are making it looks like they're serious about capturing the afc north this year... with our brutal schedule and the always competitive afc north i see us having a difficult time winning it again and making the playoffs

Outside of the Chargers and Pats*, they play pretty much the same schedule we do. They play 8 games against playoff teams (including the 2 against us), as do we. Stallworth is an OK receiver, but nothing special and is definitely not worth the money they're going to be giving him. On top of that, they don't have a draft pick until the 4th round this year. I'm conceding nothing to them as they haven't shown me anything to this point. In my mind the AFCN is still our division to lose.

yep.... one good field goal away from beating the steelers in their house last year isn't going to cut it...

The Browns were not one field goal away from beating the Steelers. They were one field goal away from tying the game. The Browns did give the Steelers a hell of a time that game. Thanks to Josh Cribbs. Cleveland vaunted O put up 163 total yards and put together one good drive all game.

Oh, and getting blown out 34-7 in your own house isn't going to cut it either.

yep, one field goal away from tying. very true. the first half the browns dominated and then josh cribbs was the only one who came out in the second half. we didn't get blown out at home though... we did score 7!! hehehe...

That said, there is no denial that Cleveland really wants to beat Pittsburgh. And now.

And there's the draft coming up. Let's see who Pittsburgh scoops up to challenge Cleveland.

YAWN

I look forward to seeing him get his teeth knocked out when the browns QB Anderson throws him a ball in traffic and our safety smacks him right in the mouth. This isn't the weak sauce AFC East, time to play AFC NORTH Big Boy Ball.

Going to knock his contract right out of his ear hole.

Donte can be a big contributor if he stays healthy.

But that's a big if. Saints fans called him Donte Streetclothes.
