NFL: Stallworth deals with tragedy ’every day'

Associated Press

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Donte' Stallworth says the death of a Miami construction worker is something he deals with every day.

Stallworth held a press conference Thursday and talked openly about the fatal accident in which he struck and killed Mario Reyes while driving under the influence of alcohol.

Stallworth pleaded guilty to DUI manslaughter last year and served 24 days in jail. He was suspended for all of last season by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

Stallworth says if he could "go back and take that night over, I would."

He hasn't played football since the 2008 season with the Cleveland Browns. Stallworth was reinstated by Goodell on Feb. 8 and signed by Baltimore about eight days later.
