Josh Brent DL DAL Jul 18 '131 Comment
Cowboys NT Josh Brent is retiring from the NFL after three seasons to focus on his off-the-field issues.
Brent says "it's the right thing to do" in order for him to get his life back on track following his December intoxicated manslaughter arrest that resulted in the death of teammate and best friend Jerry Brown. We were expecting a decision on Brent's roster spot to come before the weekend, but this wasn't the outcome many saw coming. Brent recorded 44 tackles and 1.5 sacks after being a seventh-round pick in the 2010 Supplemental Draft out of Illinois. We may see him back on an NFL field some day, but that's not a given.
