NFL: Goodell: Stallworth will be reinstated

Associated Press

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte’ Stallworth will be reinstated from his suspension for killing a pedestrian while driving drunk.

At his annual Super Bowl-week news conference Friday, Goodell said Stallworth’s suspension will be lifted after the Super Bowl on Sunday.
Goodell said he met with Stallworth about a month ago, and the receiver is “in a better place than he was.” Goodell said Stallworth recognizes what he did and has prepared himself to return to the NFL.
Stallworth spent 24 days in jail for a DUI manslaughter conviction in the case. The accident occurred last March in South Florida, and he was suspended without pay last August.
