Draft Scout Josh Price-Brent News
08/09/14 - DT Josh Brent's meeting with commissioner Roger Goodell on Thursday went well, according to ESPNDallas.com. Brent met with Goodell to determine if he would be suspended stemming from his conviction for intoxication manslaughter in a December 2012 accident that took the life of former Dallas Cowboys teammate Jerry Brown Jr.
Brent, 26, was sentenced to six months in jail and 10 years of probation. He spent the final 45 days of his jail term at a drug and alcohol treatment center.
The NFL has not announced if Brent will be suspended or not. Brent will reportedly remain in Dallas until the league makes a ruling.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said the team will keep a roster spot open for Brent if he is not suspended.
06/17/14 - DT Josh Brent was released from jail on Sunday, according to the Dallas County sheriff's office.
Brent, 26, was convicted of intoxication manslaughter in January.
In December 2012, while driving drunk, Brent's friend and teammate, Jerry Brown, was killed. Brent was sentenced to 180 days in jail and 10 years probation. He is expected to report to a treatment facility to complete his sentence, which is scheduled to end in July.
Brent crashed his Mercedes sedan on a suburban Dallas highway after leaving a nightclub with Brown as a passenger. Brent had a blood-alcohol content level of 0.18 percent, more than two times the legal limit in Texas.
Brent faced up to 20 years in prison for the conviction but Brown's mother, Stacey Jackson, testified that she forgave Brent and the sentence was reduced.
The two former Cowboys were also college teammates at Illinois.
Brent was a regular on the roster while Brown, a linebacker, was on the practice squad.
Brent subsequently retired before his trial this past January. He could return to the NFL, but it's possible he could face a league suspension.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has said he is supportive of Brent and has not ruled out bringing him back.
04/17/13 - Although nose tackle Josh Brent has not been banned from attending voluntary workouts with the Dallas Cowboys, executive vice president Stephen Jones advised Brent that it would be best if he stayed away from the Cowboys' facility until his legal situation is cleared up.
Brent was arrested for intoxication manslaughter in the death of his friend and teammate Jerry Brown Jr. on Dec. 8.
Brent is currently on the reserve/non-football illness list. He has a Sept. 23 trial date on the charge, and he faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
"The league hasn't had any sanctions on him," Jones said Tuesday on KRLD-FM in Dallas, according to ESPNDallas.com. "The more important thing for Josh right now is to focus on the issues at hand for himself, and obviously, he's got some legal issues he's going to be working through, not to mention all the personal issues that are involved with what he was involved with. That's what he's focused on right now."
03/21/13 - DT Josh Brent will not play for the Cowboys in 2013, according to the Dallas Morning News.
The Cowboys continue offering support to Brent, who has met with coach Jason Garrett, and expect commissioner Roger Goodell to rule on Brent's eligibility even before a trial date is known.
There is precedent for Goodell suspending players in a similar situation. He levied a one-year suspension when wide receiver Donte Stallworth, then with the Cleveland Browns, was the driver in a fatal, single-car traffic accident while intoxicated. A pedestrian was killed in the accident.
Brent is in the final year of his contract.
12/20/12 - NT Josh Brent will not be allowed on the sideline for Cowboys games the rest of the season. Brent is on the reserve/non-football injury list after being charged with intoxication vehicular manslaughter in the death of practice-squad linebacker Jerry Brown. He was on the sideline for last Sunday's game against the Steelers. The Cowboys talked it over and said they will continue to support Brown but will keep him off the sideline and out of the public eye. The Cowboys say they were not condoning drunk driving but supporting a teammate and a friend in trouble. They do understand the sensitive nature of the issue.
"Support is support," fullback Lawrence Vickers said Wednesday. "Josh understands the things that are going on, we understand the things that are going on but one thing, our house is going to stay good and strong. We're going to stick with our values and the morals that we have and that's being there for each other. So regardless of what's going on, nothing can't stop that. That's what we're going to do is be there for our brother."
