The media got to chat with Donté Stallworth today on a conference call, and I knew others would ask him about the substance-abuse program, his contract and playing with Kelley Washington. So I asked him about the Eagles' situation and why he didn't return. His responses, as seen below, were kind of interesting:
Q: Can you talk about the level of interest from Philadelphia? When you spoke to them this offseason, what were your feelings about your chances of coming back there?
DS: I thought my chances were pretty good. I had a productive year there and I felt like I could help the team. Before we finished with the season, I was told by pretty much everyone in the organization that they wanted me back and they wanted to get things worked out.
Q: Do you feel like you weren’t wanted back?
DS: No, I don't feel like I was wanted. All in all, I know that I was able to produce on the field and at the end of the day this is a business. They have to make the best business decision that they think is best for them and the same thing with myself.
