The Miami Dolphins need to find a wide receiver. Well, really, the Dolphins need to find several wide receivers. But, let's start with finding one first. It's not a secret that the team needs to find somone to catch the ball. The fans know it. The media knows it. And, as Hard Knocks, has shown us, the coaches know it. Now, the team is set to do something about it.
According to South Florida Sun-Sentinelreporter Omar Kelly, the Dolphins are going to workout "a number of NFL receivers today and Donte Stallworth is one of them."
Miami, and the rest of the NFL, are facing tomorrow's 53-man roster deadline. Currently, the team is trying to decide between keeping Davone Bess, Brian Hartline, Legedu Naanee, Robert Wallace, Marlon Moore, Clyde Gates, Jeff Fuller, Chris Hogan, B.J. Cunningham, and Rishard Matthews.
Stallworth was a first round pick by the New Orleans Saints in 2002, having played for six different teams over his career. He was suspended for the entire 2009 season after pleading guilty to DUI manslaughter charges stemming from his hitting and killing a man on the MacArthur Causeway in Miami Beach. He spent 24 days in jail, along with community service, probation, and community control requirements.
He also lost his Florida driver's license.
Stallworth was signed this past March by the New England Patriots, then was released earlier this week.
