Eagles | Stallworth ready to assume No. 1 role

Dan Gelston, of the Associated Press, reports Philadelphia Eagles WR Donte' Stallworth is excited about being in Philadelphia and ready to take on the team's No.1 wide receiver role. He believes a change of scenery could be exactly what he needs to fulfill his potential as the 13th overall pick in the 2002 draft. "I can help the team win games, if that's catching deep balls down the field or catching short passes and making long runs down the field, I can do it," he said after practice Tuesday, Aug. 29. Stallworth joins a crowded receiving corps that includes promising second-year WR Reggie Brown, WR Todd Pinkston, rookie WRs Hank Baskett and Jason Avant, and veteran WRs Greg Lewis, Darnerian McCants and Jabar Gaffney. The Eagles likely will carry six wideouts, so the coaching staff faces some tough decisions before final cuts must be made by Saturday, Sept. 2.
