NEW YORK (AP) — The Huffington Post has made an unusual choice for a new correspondent covering national security — former NFL wide receiver Donte Stallworth.
The website announced Thursday that the 10-year NFL player will join
its Washington bureau this month as a fellow.
Ryan Grim, the site's Washington bureau chief, said Stallworth has a
quick mind, insatiable curiosity and a passion for politics.
Amanda Terkel, managing editor for politics, said anyone who has
followed Stallworth's Twitter feed knows he has a real interest and
opinions on the topic.
Stallworth had a 10-year career in the NFL, ending after an
injury-shortened season with the New England Patriots two years ago.
