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.
