Dallas Cowboys Still Have No Plans to Release Josh Brent


Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman Josh Brent is once again behind bars because of another failed drug test as he awaits trial for the death of former teammate and best friend Jerry Brown.

It has been twice this month that Brent has had his parole revoked, but the Cowboys are standing by his side as he deals with his legal issues.

On one hand, you have to feel for Brent who ended up killing his friend and teammate because of an awful decision he made to get behind the wheel of his car and speed which led to the crash. It has to be hard to deal with the guilt, but at the same time Brent has no one to blame but himself.

According to Ed Werder of ESPN, the Cowboys plan to continue supporting Brent and there are no immediate plans to release him.

However, there will come a time where the team will have to let him go and deal with his problems. Dallas is doing what they feel is the right thing to do for their troubled player, but at some point his mistakes will lead to the team deciding to part ways.
