Donte' Stallworth Cleared For Football Activities


Stallworth has been a memorable name for most Patriots fans since the magical 18-1 season. Lots of fans were glad to see him back with the team last season, but it didn’t last long. Luckily for his future, he’s been cleared to participate in football activities. NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reported on Friday that the veteran wide receiver has been cleared to resume football activities on the heels of his March hot-air balloon accident. Stallworth and his girlfriend suffered burns when the balloon they were riding over Miami collided with xome power lines. Luckily, for his sake he suffered no permanent damage, but the definitely  incident shook him.

“In that moment, I thought my eyes would close and I’d never wake up again,” Stallworth said in April.

This is very interesting, as he’s already 32 years old and that doesn’t help his resume. He’ll hope to find a team very soon, but is it realistic that he will? It’s debatable. At 32, he’s played for six different clubs since 2006 and has just 84 catches over the past four seasons

Lots of Patriots fan will be rooting for him to get back onto the field. But, will he back in New England once again or is this just too late for his hopes of returning to the NFL?

The Patriots have always loved Stallworth, so don’t be surprised to see him back in New England if they decide to sign another wide receiver.

One thing though, that might hurt his chances of returning is that they already had signed a good amount of wide receivers and do they really need to add another?
