NFL Free Agency 2012: Donte Stallworth Signs With New England Patriots

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Donte Stallworth has agreed to a one-year deal with the New England Patriots on Monday, five years after his first stint in New England ended.

Stallworth caught 46 passes for 697 yards during his one season with the Patriots in 2007, but has not been nearly as productive since.

Stallworth returned to the NFL in 2010 to post an underwhelming season with the Baltimore Ravens, appearing in eight games and mustering just two catches after sitting out the 2009 season with a one-year suspension stemming from a manslaughter conviction. Last season with the Washington Redskins, Stallworth appeared in 11 contests and caught 22 passes for 309 yards.

The Patriots already signed Anthony Gonzalez and Brandon Lloyd during the 2012 NFL free agency period, so Stallworth's role would likely be minimum assuming that he makes the team.
