Browns terminate Stallworth’s contract

The Browns announced Monday that they terminated the contract of WR Donte Stallworth.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Friday that Stallworth would be reinstated into the league after Super Bowl XLIV. But Stallworth most likely will not play for the Browns in 2010.

While under the influence of alcohol, Stallworth struck and killed a pedestrian while driving on a causeway connecting Miami and Miami Beach on March 14, 2009, resulting in his suspension from the NFL. He served 24 days in jail and was placed on house arrest.

Goodell said he met with Stallworth for 45 minutes to an hour before the Dolphins’ final regular-season game in Miami, where Stallworth lives. Goodell added that Stallworth seemed to be remorseful and worthy of reinstatement. Their conversation helped seal the reinstatement, Goodell said.
