Suspending Stallworth For The Year Was The Right Thing To Do!

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell did the right thing in suspending wide receiver Donte' Stallworth for the year after Stallworth was convicted of DUI manslaughter in June. Stallworth received a 30 day sentence after reaching a financial settlement with the family of Mario Reyes, who he accidentally killed on March 14 in Miami.

Stallworth, who signed a 7 year $35 million contract with the Cleveland Browns last year deserves to lose at the minimum several million dollars of pay. Since he was already a fringe player, and will be 29 years old when he's eligible to be reinstated, Stallworth's career could be over.
