In a letter to Stallworth, NFL commissioner Robert Goodell said Thursday the player's actions caused ``irreparable harm to the victim and his family, your club, your fellow players and the NFL.'' He will not be paid while suspended.
Stallworth pleaded guilty this month to a DUI manslaughter charge for striking Mario Reyes on March 14 in Florida. He began serving a 30-day jail sentence Tuesday and has reached a financial settlement with Reyes' family.
After jail, he must serve two years of house arrest and spend eight years on probation. The house arrest provisions would allow him to resume playing.
