    I'd be just fine with Moss, Stallworth and Edelman while we wait for Welker to return. Something tells me it's not happening but I'm all for it.

    He wasn't any problem while he was here, why not? He'd actually have a bigger role now too.

    I'm not so sure. Did Stallworth make a big mistake/criminal act that cost another person their life? Absolutely. IIRC this was Stallworth's first brush with the law, unlike some others in the league and some who have even been signed by the Pats. (Moss/C. Dillon)
    If you believe in second chances, you sign a guy like Stallworth if you think that he fits as WR #3.

    We have had (and still have) some players who aren't angels. Moss for one. Faulk had his pot issue last offseason (not that I care, just for reference). It was a terrible accident he was in but it was an accident, he's not a woman beater or something like that which is worse, IMO, as it's intentional.

    They let him go even prior to the car accident, so I'm not sure why there would be any expectation of him returning after all that's happened.

    Two possible reasons :

    1) He'd be cheaper now.
    2) Our WR aren't as good as they were then.

    I don't know why they let him go; he was productive I thought. If $$ was the issue then the Pats, imo, should bring him back. He would be cheaper than Malcolm Floyd or Antonio Bryant.

    Peyton's commercials have seriously gone downhill since the days of "cut that meat." But I digress (often)...

    Stallworth is no more than a #4, a short passing game RB.

    Don't turn your noses up at a viable wide receiver.

    Problem is(Maybe) that we really need someone like Floyd or Bryant AND Stallworth for this offense! Hopefully Tate works his way into a rotation like that and then we'd be ok when Wes gets back.

    He actually didn't really get it. Gaffney had surpassed/replaced him as Tom's #3 choice down the stretch. YAC is a wonderful thing. Unfortunately you have to be in the right place at the right time to get thrown at here...I think Stallworth struggled with that post snap reading stuff. If I recall he was also in the pee in a cup club when he got here, or had been, so it's not like this was his lone mistake. I think it's unfortunate because I think at heart Donte was a good guy, but he's not the kind of charcter guys you need here in 2010.

    When a guy just never quite lives up to his potential no matter now many places he lands, it's usually because there is something lacking in the guy.

    Stallworth has much to get back, like his reputation. I think he'd be affordable and would play his butt off. Depend on what "punishment" the comish wants to mete out.

    I think for Stallworth, being back here would be somewhat of a "comfort zone" for him as its the last place he was even a little bit relevent in the recent past. Plus, having a good working relationship with Brady and the coaches would be nice too. I'm all for it.

    You're definitely right - although I thought the offense was better with Stallworth - but he was still playing in the second half and playoffs. He wasn't the favorite son but he wasn't Galloway either.

    He made a horrible mistake, but I don't think his character has ever been a question. I'm not sure how the Krafts feel about him but I would take him back in a time of serious need.

    He knows the system.

    He was a downfield threat.

    He can provide some sort of early season help while Tate/Draftee get fully acquainted with game time and then move aside once they improve.

    I'm all for it.

    And as for Myra Kraft, I'm not particularly bothered by her opinion. This is football, not Church.

    Makes a lot of sense. Would also like them to pick up a consistent, gaffney type.
