CLEVELAND — Suspended Browns wide receiver Donte Stallworth says he respects Roger Goodell's authority and judgment and will accept whatever ruling the NFL commissioner makes on his future.
Stallworth, suspended indefinitely for killing a pedestrian while driving drunk in Miami, met with Goodell in New York Wednesday about a possible reinstatement.
In a public statement released today, Stallworth apologized for his actions and vowed to conduct himself "in a manner that more accurately reflects who I am and meets the high standard expected of all NFL players."
Stallworth thanked Goodell for the opportunity to express remorse.
Stallworth was recently released from jail after serving 24 days for a DUI conviction in the death of 59-year-old Mario Reyes.
