Draft Scout Josh Price-Brent News
09/29/14 - DT Josh Brent is back with the Cowboys after having his suspension for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy in the tragic death of teammate Jerry Brown.
Brent has been out of the league since Dec. 2012 when he was involved in a drunken driving accident that killed Brown. He given three years probation and 90 days in jail.
09/03/14 - DT Josh Brent has been suspended for the first 10 games of the season because of his conviction for vehicular manslaughter in the death of teammate Jerry Brown. Brent can begin attending meetings in Week 7 and practicing in Week 9. The first game Brent would be eligible to play would be Nov. 23 at Giants. The Cowboys can't communicate with Brent until Week 7. But they have been monitoring his workouts since his release from jail in July. Brent has been working out at Michael Johnson Performance 30 minutes north of Dallas in McKinney Tex.
"The reports that we've gotten regarding Josh have been that he's working very hard and trying to get back," coach Jason Garrett said. "When you have something -- an opportunity like playing pro football -- oftentimes getting a guy back in that environment is what's best for him, whatever that field of endeavor is. If you've gone through some very difficult, tragic situations in your life you want to get as much normalcy back in your life as possible. I know how important it is for Josh to get back playing football and by all accounts he's working very hard to do that."
08/29/14 - DT Josh Brent is still awaiting word from the NFL on his reinstatement to the league and if they will be disciplined for any more games.
Brent has not played since the December 2012 car accident that killed practice squad linebacker Jerry Brown. Brent was convicted of intoxication manslaughter and sentenced to 180 days in jail, with a judge allowing him to serve the final 45 days in an addiction rehabilitation center.
The Cowboys will create a roster spot for Brent as soon as he's ruled eligible by the NFL.
Owner Jerry Jones is hoping to get word on Brent before final cuts on Saturday.
"I'm thinking that it was in the next day or two, but we haven't heard from it," Jones said. "I'm just sure we'll get some word here as we're making this roster and we're making these decisions about the status of players and certainly the players that are on the 53. So I would think just knowing that it's roster-making time, we would hear something from the league on Josh Brent."
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.
