Two years after he accidentally killed teammate Jerry Brown in an intoxicated car crash, DT Josh Brent is back with the Dallas Cowboys. According to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Cowboys will activate the defensive tackle to the 53-man roster today.
On January 24, 2014, Brent was found guilty of intoxication manslaughter in the death of Jerry Brown and sentenced to 180 days in jail and 10 years probation. Brent has been with the team since completing his sentence for intoxication manslaughter, from the wreck that killed Browns – his college and professional teammate.
Brent was taken by the Cowboys in the 7th round of the 2010 NFL Supplemental Draft. In 5 starts and spot duty for the Dallas Cowboys in 2012, he recorded 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble along with over 20 tackles. He is expected to augment the defensive line in the middle.
