Donte Stallworth Wouldn't Mind Catching Passes From Matthew Stafford In Detroit

On Tuesday, Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford apparently worked out with Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown and Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Donte Stallworth. Stallworth mentioned the session on Twitter and said something very interesting about potentially catching passes from Stafford more often in the future.

Stallworth is set to become a free agent once the NFL lockout ends. Last year, he worked out with the Lions in February before ultimately signing with the Ravens.

Had the Lions not drafted Titus Young, I could see the interest with Stallworth being mutual. Considering the Lions' top three spots at WR are set right now, I don't really see Detroit having a big interest in Stallworth. Also, considering Stallworth played in only eight games last season and caught all of two passes for 82 yards, there's no telling if the Lions would be interested even if they had more of a need at WR based on his lack of production in 2010.
