Goodell: Stallworth to be reinstated

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Wide receiver Donte’ Stallworth, who was suspended indefinitely following his plea agreement for DUI manslaughter, will be reinstated after the Super Bowl, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said during his annual Super Bowl news conference.

Goodell said he met with Stallworth for 45 minutes to an hour before the Dolphins’ final regular-season game in Miami, where Stallworth lives. He said Stallworth seemed to be “in a better place now.”

The accident occurred last March in South Florida, and Stallworth spent 24 days in jail. He was suspended without pay last August.
