In partnership with the NFL in the UK


NFL wideout teams up with sext scandal congressman Anthony Weiner

Published Add your comment

Donte' Stallworth has been without an NFL side since being released from the Washington Redskins practice squad last summer. 

Naturally, the wide receiver still holds out hope on making a 53-man roster and has been keeping himself in good shape ahead of the possibility. 

Well the former New Orleans Saints and New England Patriots man has found himself a new workout partner, tweeting earlier about going to the gym with disgraced former US Congressman Anthony Weiner.

If you remember the story of Weiner then you'll know just how weird this is. And if you have no idea who Weiner or 'Carlos Danger' are then you have really missed out, and here is your lesson.

The story starts in 2011 with the Democratic US Congressman Weiner sending a picture of his erect penis to a 21-year old college student from Seattle, Washington publicly on Twitter. The picture and tweet were screen-shotted quicker than Weiner could delete them and sent to a website.

After several days of denying that he had posted the image - instead saying his account was hacked by political opponents - he admitted to having sent a link to the photo, and also other sexually explicit photos and messages to women both before and during his marriage. He stepped down from his role in Congress two or so weeks after the scandal broke.

Things didn't stop there however. In 2013, Weiner decided to make a comeback into the political world and ran for the Mayor of New York. As you may have guessed, more sexting pictures emerged - but tellingly - they were sent in 2012, a year after the previous scandal. 

Reports emerged that Weiner used an alias this time, becoming the hilariously titled 'Carlos Danger' in his new round of sex-capades. Weiner admitted that he had sexted with three women in the months after his resignation from Congress, and that there had been six to ten ladies involved in total. 

He pulled out of the race for Mayor shortly after and hadn't been heard of until now. Stallworth tweeted "Morning gym work and now @anthonyweiner is ready to try out for the NFL." I doubt Roger Goodell would want that type of resume in his league somehow.
