Report: Patriots, WR Stallworth agree to six-year contract

Mar 11, 2007 - 3:04 PM BRISTOL, Connecticut (Ticker) -- Tom Brady apparently has a new top target.

According to a report on ESPN.com, the New England Patriots on Sunday agreed to terms with free agent wide receiver Donte' Stallworth on a six-year contract.

The report stated that Stallworth, who played with the Philadelphia Eagles last season, will receive $30 million, including $12 million in guaranteed money.

The signing would be yet another move in a busy offseason for the Patriots, who already have signed coveted free agent linebacker Adalius Thomas and acquired wide receiver Wes Welker from Miami.

Although Welker is a reliable possession receiver, Stallworth would be a legitimate No. 1 target for Brady, who clearly struggled at times last season while the team rotated multiple players at the wide receiver position.

Stallworth, 28, had 38 catches for 725 yards and five touchdowns in 12 games with Philadelphia last season. A 2002 first-round draft choice, the 6-foot Stallworth has 3,516 yards and 28 TDs in five seasons with the Eagles and the New Orleans Saints.
