Redskins say so long to WR Stallworth, make six other moves

The Washington Redskins cut underperforming Donte Stallworth on Tuesday to clear a roster spot for another wide receiver, newly signed David Anderson.

NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora reported Monday that the Redskins had agreed to terms with Anderson, who played under Washington offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan when the two were in Houston.

Stallworth signed with the Redskins during the offseason, but he had just five catches in four games this season. Stallworth had been inactive for two of the Redskins' past three games.

The Texans released Anderson, a six-year veteran, on Oct. 12 after bringing him back earlier in the season.

The Redskins also signed defensive end Kentwan Balmer and defensive back Domonique Johnson on Tuesday and released tight end Dominique Byrd, defensive end Darrion Scott and cornerback Brandyn Thompson.

Balmer was a first-round draft pick by the San Francisco 49ers in 2008, and he was cut by the Carolina Panthers on Sept. 1. Johnson had been on the Minnesota Vikings' practice squad.

Neither Byrd nor Scott played for the Redskins this season. Thompson had been up and down between the practice squad and main roster.

Washington also cut running back Tristan Davis from its practice squad.
