Donte’ Stallworth Suspended for 2009 Season

For the second time in recent memory, an NFL player has been suspended for an entire season because of conduct off the field. Former Patriots wide received Donte’ Stallworth has been suspended without pay for the 2009 season by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Stallworth plead guilty to DUI manslaughter earlier this summer and received what some felt was a light 30 day sentence in jail – of which he only served 24 days. Stallworth served his time and recently met with Goodell to discuss the matter. Goodell said in a statement that further consequences were necessary after the legal aspect was finished.

Stallworth becomes the second player under Goodell to be suspended for an entire season because of player conduct, Pacman Jones being the other. Michael Vick was under a blanked indefinite suspension.

Stallworth played for the Patriots in 2007, catching 46 balls for 697 yards and three touchdowns.

  1. Goodell did the right thing. Stallworth got off easy with just 30 days of sentenced jail time and ONLY 1 year suspension from the NFL.

    Under Florida’s DUI law – Stallworth was facing second degree felony with a term of imprisonment not exceeding 15 years.
