    Lots of speculation he comes back to New England.

    Was he released or put on IR last year?

    Somehow he might be able to compete with Jones, Hawkins and Jenkins.

    Belichick is looking to go with the young WRs. But...

    He may turn to Lloyd and Stallworth from his "Shadow Roster", if absolutely needful. :cool:

    Put on IR. He was injured right when he was crossing the goal line on that long touchdown against the Texans.

    Yup, remember the play, just didn't remember what they ended up doing with him.

    Great pass from TFB, great catch and fantastic route with YAC :)

    Too bad it ended up so quickly for him. :(

    Glad he's alright.

    I'd be quite happy to see him in camp, competing for a slot. If he wins out, all the better. If he doesn't, then it's still all good and I'm pretty sure he'd be stashed on the shadow roster for emergencies.

    This.

    The team wants the kids to play. Stallworth- while decent doesn't represent the future.

    I think I might rather have Branch instead seeing as this will likely be more of a camp mentor type role. But I am ok with either or both just hope that the guys we drafted and signed win the jobs.

    DA
    Jones
    Dobner
    Boyce
    and Edelman

    should be the 5 coming out of camp. (and at the very least it is a deeper group than last year).

    I would rather Stallworth make this team over Jenkins, and sadly at this point Deion Branch as well. Stallworth has a great attitude some life experiences to share with the youngsters as far as the mentorship goes, and more threatening speed than either of the aforementioned. He would also be only the second WR on the roster that has actually caught a pass from Brady in his career.

    yes ... this ... his value is as a straight line deep threat and we have that in a younger version.

    It's a pretty sad state of affairs when Old Man Stallworth can get back on the field before "young" man Gronk...

    good shadow roster candidate.

    Hopefully he'll be invited back to compete for a spot.

    I'd like to see him back here. If he's given a chance to compete, I could definitely see him making the roster. He's much better than Jenkins.

    I think Donte is toast.

    But who is the younger version of a straight line deep threat who has also shown he can catch the ball?

    BB and Stallworth have a lot of respect for one another. I could see BB extending Stallworth a contract with a good signing & workout bonus to teach and help push the young and new WRs with the idea that Stallworth most likely wouldn't end up on the 53 man roster.

    I don't think Donte is coming back to play during the season

    If its just for camp to instruct I'd
    Rather have branch

    If its to play I'd rather have Lloyd

    There always seems to be one spot for that older veteran guy. But yea I would rather have Lloyd back.

    looks like stallworth's 2013 season has ended before it has begun.


    @ErikaLeigh
    FA Wide out Donte' Stallworth was having dinner with his family Friday evening when he reached for the potato salad and in the process, dislocated his arm. He was then struck by lightening and shortly after, was attacked by a grizzly bear and then by a regular bear.

    A guy who gets injured/electrocuted/set on fire in a routine hot air balloon crash is obviously injury prone. Patriots should only be signing sturdier players who can withstand such circumstances without sustaining nagging injuries.

    "routine" and "hot air balloon crash" strike me as oxymoronic...

    After all, the patriots cannot tolerate players with serious injury risks????

    Bring Stallworth into camp. He had one of the longest Patriot pass plays last year in a crucial game. If he's healthy, of course bring him in. Banging on these rookies to produce vs a guy who has produced, just bring him in to TC.

    Time for Stallworth to coin the term 'Made of paper.'

    Heh!
    Ironic that aging, near social security Stallworth is now healthier than Gronk, Edelperson, probably Glass IR and several other Pats in their 20s.
