The Baltimore Ravens didn’t get many big plays out of their punt returners last season, but this season they think they may have acquired a free agent who can help change that: Donte’ Stallworth.
Stallworth, the wide receiver whom the Ravens signed this offseason after he was suspended for all of 2009, was among the players fielding punts at last week’s Organized Team Activities, the Baltimore Sun reports.
Stallworth has experience as a punt returner, although he hasn’t done it in a regular-season game since 2005 with the New Orleans Saints. In 2006, when Stallworth signed with the Eagles, then-Eagles special teams coordinator John Harbaugh, who’s now the Ravens’ head coach, expressed interest in Stallworth as a return man. But the Eagles never actually put Stallworth on the field as a punt returner in a game.
