Taken in the fourth round of the 1999 NFL Draft, Stokley played five seasons in Baltimore (1999-2002, 2013). In his career Stokley won two Super Bowls, one with the Ravens (XXXV) and one with Indianapolis Colts (XLI). In Super Bowl XXXV for the Ravens he caught three passes for 52 yards and scored the first touchdown of the game on a 38-yard reception in the first quarter.

After leaving the Ravens in 2003, Stokley played for the Indianapolis Colts (2003-2006), the Denver Broncos (2007-2009, 2012), the Seattle Seahawks (2010), and the New York Giants (2011). In 2013 he returned to Baltimore on a one year deal. Stokley suffered a concussion in week 14 of the 2013 season in a victory against the Minnesota Vikings and was placed on injured reserve, unfortunately ending his season. Stokley then retired.

In 15 seasons Stokley racked up 5,339 receiving yards on 397 receptions and scored 39 touchdowns through the air. In his Ravens career Stokley had 73 receptions for 1,028 receiving yards and seven touchdowns. Stokley may not have been an elite guy, but he was a great slot receiver during his career and he has two Super Bowl rings to show for it.
