Players from the Baltimore Ravens are drawing scorn and ridicule after voting wide receiver Donte’ Stallworth the team’s “courage” award. Stallworth struck and killed a man last year while driving drunk. He didn’t play in 2009 after being suspended by the NFL.
Ravens players chose Stallworth as the 2010 Ed Block Courage Award winner. Although it’s not like the Ravens aren’t used to having a guy around who has been implicated in someone’s death, Stallworth’s winning of the award is particularly galling. The only “courage” Stallworth exhibited was his abilty to buy his way out of jail with a multi-million dollar settlement with the victim’s family.
