According to Rotoworld.com and philly.com, San Francisco is one of three teams that Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Donté Stallworth would like to go to should he be unable to reach a contract agreement with the Eagles.
Stallworth went to the Eagles in a trade last August for linebacker Mark Simoneau and a fourth-round draft pick that will become a third if the Eagles sign him before free agency starts on March 2. While the Eagles would like to have him back, they feel that his asking price may be too high.
When asked where he would like to go if he were unable to return to the Eagles, who remain his number one choice, Stallworth said this:
"There's New England, obviously being able to play in an organization like that, similar to the Eagles, who have definitely won a lot of games in the past. San Francisco, young and upcoming team, has a good young quarterback [Alex Smith], and Norv Turner is still the offensive coordinator there, that helps... And Miami, the GM there was a guy who drafted me in New Orleans, Randy Mueller, and we've always had a real good relationship."
The mention of Norv Turner is another example of how the offensive coordinator's presence in San Francisco is huge for the team.
Stallworth, a 6'0" 196 lb player with five years of experience, had 38 receptions for 725 yards and five touchdowns last season. 2005 was his best career year with 70 receptions for 945 yards and seven touchdowns with the Saints.
