Cowboys’ Brent retiring again after drunken-driving crash

🕐 1 min read

IRVING, Texas (AP) — Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman Josh Brent is retiring again.

It’s the second time Brent has retired since his conviction for intoxication manslaughter in the crash that killed teammate Jerry Brown in 2012. The Cowboys placed him on the reserved/retired list Friday.

The 27-year-old Brent returned to football briefly last year after serving a 10-game suspension. He played in one game in his first action in almost exactly two years.

Brent retired before training camp in 2013 while he awaiting trial in the case. A 10-year prison term in the conviction in early 2014 was suspended, and he ended up serving about six months in jail.

Brent also had a drunken-driving conviction in Illinois, where he played college football.
