02:38 PM ET 05.17 | Donte Stallworth will be able to play in the 2013 NFL season, as the wide receiver is reportedly fully recovered after a freak hot-air balloon accident caused scary injuries. After the incident, it was quickly reported that Stallworth's injuries -- primarily burns -- wouldn't derail his football career, as he was lucky not to suffer worse injuries after his balloon flew into power lines. The 32-year-old is currently a free agent.

Pretty sure this is the first time T&R ever included the words "freak hot-air balloon accident".

Teams are considering the possibility of Stallworth as a defensive back, as long as he's okay with being burned several times each season.
