Lost in the recent upheaval in the Cleveland front office — and near upheaval in the team’s coaching staff — is the fact that a former member of the starting offense soon will be eligible to rejoin the team.
Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended receiver Donte’ Stallworth for the entire 2009 season after Stallworth pleaded guilty to felony DUI manslaughter last year.
Stallworth will be reinstated after completion of the Super Bowl on February 7, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello recently confirmed.
Whether the Browns want Stallworth remains to be seen. He was signed by one head coach and two General Managers ago. Still, his salary for 2010 is only $1.5 million, and with Braylon Edwards gone there’s a chance that the team will decide to give Stallworth another chance.
