Report: Stallworth to work out for Lions today

Three days after being reinstated by commissioner Roger Goodell, Donte Stallworth is getting a job interview.

He will have a workout today with the Detroit Lions, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. Stallworth missed the entire 2009 season after he was suspended by the NFL following a guilty plea in a DUI manslaughter case. The Boston Globe first reported the quick interest in Stallworth and agent Drew Rosenhaus told the newspaper that he expects his client, who has a jump on the March 5 start of free agency, to have a new team in the next couple weeks.

Goodell believes Stallworth is on the right path.

"I think he recognizes what he did and the horrific nature and the unfortunate outcome and I think he's prepared himself to get back in and play," Goodell said at his annual press conference last Friday in Miami.

Stallworth was a first-round pick by New Orleans in 2002. His best season with the Saints came in 2005 when he made 70 receptions for 945 yards and seven touchdowns. He’s bounced around since with Philadelphia, New England and Cleveland. The Browns cut him almost immediately after he was reinstated.

Amazingly, the Lions (see Matt Millen) used first-round draft picks on wide receivers four times from 2003 to 2007. All they have to show for it right now is Calvin Johnson and the bounty received in the Roy Williams trade with Dallas. Detroit needs to develop Matthew Stafford and an essential element will be finding a quality target across from Johnson to also pair with tight end Brandon Pettigrew, a first-round pick last season.
