Stallworth Suspended for Season

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte' Stallworth was suspended without pay for the season by commissioner Roger Goodell. Stallworth was given a 30-day jail sentence and reached an undisclosed financial settlement with the family of Mario Reyes, a 59-year-old construction worker who was leaving his job as a crane operator.

Stallworth caught 38 passes for the Eagles in 2006.

Your conduct endangered yourself and others, leading to the death of an innocent man," Goodell wrote. "The NFL and NFL players must live with the stain that you have placed on their reputations."

Police said Stallworth had spent the night drinking at a Miami Beach club and had a blood-alcohol level of .126, above Florida's .08 legal limit.

I think Goodell did the right thing. 30 days is jail was too lenient. Stallworth deserves this punishment.
