Browns wide out Donte’ Stallworth is out of the league for now, but hopes that commissioner Roger Goodell will give him a second chance to make something of a chance to play in the league. And he hopes that he’ll be able to return sooner rather than later.
“I recognize that there is a difference between the legal standard in my criminal case and the standard to which NFL players are held,” Stallworth said. “It is clear that I exercised poor judgment and caused irreparable harm to Mario Reyes, his family, the NFL, its owners, coaches, employees and to my fellow players.”
Stallworth thanked Goodell for the opportunity to express his remorse and said he will accept whatever punishment Goodell hands down.
“Whatever he ultimately decides is the appropriate discipline, I will accept knowing that I have profoundly affected the NFL and its relationship with the fans of our game,” Stallworth said. “I jeopardized the honor and privilege that I have been given to be an NFL player and to play for our fans. I am truly sorry.”
