Patriots Decline Option on Stallworth

In a move which surprised almost no one, the Patriots have declined the option on wide receiver Donte Stallworth, paving the way for him to become a free agent.

The Pats signed Stallworth to a long term deal before the 2007 season, but a provision in the contract which gave Stallworth more than $6 million in roster bonuses if he was on the team in 2008 essentially made the contract a one year deal. The Patriots can resign Stallworth, but he may test the free agent market now if he wishes.

The Patriots also informed Kelly Washington that his option for the 2008 season wouldn’t be picked up.
