Browns Officially Release WR Donte’ Stallworth

The future of Donte’ Stallworth in a Browns uniform has been decided, as the team today announced they are releasing him. The team did it just after NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Friday that Stallworth would be reinstated following the Super Bowl.

Stallworth spent all of 2009 suspended after he pleaded guilty to killing a pedestrian while driving drunk in Florida. He spent 24 days in jail.

“I think he’s in a better place than he was,” Goodell said on Friday, adding that he met with Stallworth about a month ago. “I think he recognizes what he did and the horrific nature and the unfortunate outcome, and I think he’s prepared himself to get back in and play.”

It’ll be somewhere else, as the Browns have decided to move on.

Stallworth, 29, spent one season with the Browns, catching 17 passes for 170 yards and one touchdown in 2008 while battling injuries. A college star at Tennessee, he has also played with New England, Philadelphia and New Orleans since the Saints drafted him in the first round in 2002.
