He is serving a 30-day jail sentence after pleading guilty to DUI manslaughter, after which will be two years of house arrest and probation. Stallworth also has been suspended indefinitely by the league.

Jets standout suspended: The league banned Jets linebacker Calvin Pace for four games for violating its policy on performance-enhancing substances.

Last season, Pace had a career-high seven sacks, 67 tackles, five forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries.
