Stallworth to meet with Goodell Wednesday

Donte’ Stallworth finished his jail sentence in 24 days, but he remains under some fashion of house arrest for the next two years.

It’s safe to assume that he had Wednesday’s trip out of Miami approved ahead of time.

ESPN’s Kelly Naqi reports that Stallworth will meet with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell Wednesday afternoon in midtown Manhattan, roughly two miles from PFT’s satellite offices.  (My mother’s basement.)

It’s unclear what Stallworth and Goodell will discuss or what it could mean for Stallworth’s status with the league.  The Browns receiver is currently on an indefinite suspension.

Stallworth’s previous history with the league’s substance abuse program won’t help his status, even if he was out of the program on March 14 when he struck and killed pedestrian Mario Reyes in Miami.

Stallworth pleaded guilty to DUI manslaughter charges and tests revealed he had marijuana in his system. 

He’s very unlikely to play for the Browns again, but Wednesday’s meeting could lead to his status with the league being clarified shortly.

    when is Gadell’s meeting with Andy Reid? The owner of a drug emporium home, illegal drug imporium I might add.

    The way the commish mishandled the Vick suspension. Stallworth will get 4-8 games.
    It seems Goodell forgot about Ookie’s failed drug test so he might ignore Stallworth’s pot use as well.

    Goodell is a power hungry ego driven oaf intent on putting his stamp on everything. I would be surprised if the owners and players put up with him long term.

    How can his status even be in question? What do you have to do to get kicked out of the NFL?

    Your mom lives two miles from Manhattan and you still live in the middle of bfe? Aren’t you the big shot of the family now?

    Saw a 12 yr old kid with his old man at training camp last weekend wearing a Stallworth jersey. Even if he’s not old enough to understand the magnitude of this guy’s crime, the father should at least have the decency to explain it to him and respectfully get rid of the jersey.
    Stallworth’s no role model; he’s at times been almost worthless on the field and has several times proven to be even more worthless off of it.

    Stallworth still shows his spot on the teams website as a WR. Will this be changed tomorrow???
    For some reason his career highlights fails to mention getting away with murder, or at least vehicular manslaughter

    Do you know that on the same Britt Reid was driving a suv on heroin and crashed into a car at an intersection. Then the other reid son (I don’t know his name) had been in a traffic altercation AKA road rage and pulled a gun on a family man. On The Same Day!!! What a doosh andy reid is fukin Big red

    Mr. Commissioner,
    I am so sorry for killing that Mexican dude. You know man, when you play for the Browns, drinkin’ is all you can do to get through the day. Its so tough man. But everything’s cool. I mean the family forgive me everything, you know what I’m sayin’? I paid them some serious cash to take care of his kids. I got kids too and I know it takes money to raise them, you know what I’m sayin’? So if the court can forgive Donte and the family can forgive Donte, I am asking the NFL to forgive Donte.

  11. Big Rog says: Aug 5, 2009 11:47 AM

    Will the commish give a slap on the wrist? I heard Donte likes that kind of stuff.

  15. empty13 says: Aug 5, 2009 12:41 PM

    CrookedSteve is funny with all the hating on Andy Reid and his family

    A quick lesson in the issue of the dumbass “mistakes” of wannabe thugs vs. genuine lifelong utterly immoral unsalvageable thuggish scumbaggery
    (For the Vick apologists out there)
    Plax = wannabe thug dumbass, bad mistake
    Stallworth = dumbass, REAL bad mistake
    Matt Jones = dumbass mistake(s)
    Vick = lifelong scumbag, pre-meditated, planned, lying sadistic torturing criminal thug
    Pacman = lifelong criminal thug (though some could argue he’s on the cusp)
    OJ = do I really need to say anything here?
    See the difference?
    Try this test:
    Are the first 3 mistakes the sort of things you could imagine somebody otherwise decent doing–maybe even one of your friends, a family member, co-worker, etc.?
    But the latter group–is there a chance in hell anyone you know would ever enagage in crap like that?
    For your sake, I hope not…

  18. Facts Domino says: Aug 5, 2009 1:04 PM

    Way to spell it out Dewey, but some are too ignorant to comprehend it.

  19. D.R.Universal says: Aug 5, 2009 1:16 PM

    Dewey you are moron!! Sounds to me like you are justifying the players you like…??
    (FYI..i dont care about any of these guys) but how is Pacman a lifelong criminal thug? What exactly did he do personally? Not a member of his entourage but himself?
    Plax was carrying the gun that went off in a nightclub that could have injured many ppl but thankfully just himself…
    Stallworth KILLED a HUMAN (not dogs)..Human life is way more valuable than an animal, say what you want…I grew up with dogs and have one now but lets face it–your dog dies you cry then get another one! Your father or brother dies–there is NO replacement!
    Get off Vick’s back dude…its not like he was fighting Poodles or Collie’s…LOL…pit bulls are vicious animals that have no place in society anyway (ie. James Harrison’s son being attacked)….
    But I guess someone like you who is so perfect and never got involved with anything illegal, you wouldnt understand…to quote Jay-Z “Pull ya skirt back down, grow a set man”

    One of the best comments I’ve read on the subject.

    Michael Vick’s crime was far worse than Stallworth’s. Vick’s was pre meditated and deliberate He intended to hurt and kill dogs and to run a dog fighting business. He deliberately broke the law as if to say he was better than everyone else because he was a football player.
    I have never seen it suggested that Stallworth had any intention of killing a person. It was tragic – but not intentional. It is the deliberate intention that makes Vick’s actions worse than Stallworths.

    D.R.Universal ~
    Although I think that Stallworth got off easy you have to remember that the family agreed to the sentence, no matter what reason they agreed. Also, Vick should be condemmed for what he did. Dogs are animals, they cannot defend themselves. The man that Stallworth hit stepped out onto the causeway, Stallworth did not put him there and tell him to stay. Vick on the other hand forced these dogs to fight. Pitt bulls are not as bad as most make them out to be; apparently you have never had the joy of being around one. It is all in the way that you treat a dog, if you treat them poorly they will attack, just like with a human.

    Dewey, for your sake, I hope you don’t know anybody that would do the first group of stuff. Shoot yourself with an illegal gun, run over somebody while drunk and get busted with coke? Yeah, fine upstanding guys right there. You should have put Michael Irvin on that list.

    “Although I think that Stallworth got off easy you have to remember that the family agreed to the sentence, no matter what reason they agreed.”
    Why were their opinions even considered? Who is running the courts in Florida and who are they running them for?

  26. FumbleNuts says: Aug 5, 2009 4:27 PM

    Intention of killing a person? So if you drink and drive but you don’t intend to kill someone that makes it ok if you do?
    This was a HUMAN life!
    Kick this Bum out of the NFL.
