Redskins coach Mike Shanahan, in a piece in Thursday's editions of the Boston Herald, said this about receiver Donte' Stallworth: "They got him at a great price, and a guy that has great speed. Why not take a chance?"

As for what that price is, here are the specifics of Stallworth's one-year pact:

Base salary: $825,000
Signing bonus: $25,000
Workout bonus: $25,000
Injury split: $387,000 (if he lands on IR)

The specifics of the contract reinforce Shanahan's point about a "great price." This is the type of deal that has little downside for the Patriots.
