News Gets Worse for Stallworth

According to the AP, the Browns WR has been charged with DUI manslaughter in the death of Mario Reyes.

UPDATE: The Browns have issued a statement: "The charges levied against Donte' Stallworth are very serious and we are disappointed he has put himself in this position. We are saddened by the circumstances that have taken place and our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Mario Reyes. We have been in communication with the Commissioner, who is reviewing the situation under league policies, and we will withhold further comment at this time."

The unhappy saga of Cleveland Browns WR Donte Stallworth continued its downward trajectory on Wednesday afternoon, as the veteran receiver was charged with DUI manslaughter in the killing of a pedestrian last month.

According to the Associated Press, Miami police claim that Stallworth had a blood alcohol level of .126 (50% above the legal limit) when his Bentley hit and killed 59-year-old Mario Reyes. As the OBR reported previously, if convicted, Stallworth could face fifteen years in prison.

The news obviously is bad for Stallworth and his current employer, the Cleveland Browns. The team has played this situation very carefully, expressing their concern while allowing Stallworth to work out with his teammates as he awaited the results of the investigation.

While the Browns may be in a position to cut Stallworth and recoup his roster bonus, it is likely that the NFLPA would battle them on that front, which may cause the team to simply cut bait and walk away from the situation. There has been no official statement from the team in the wake of today's news. Recommended Stories
