Josh Brent Arrested, Still On Dallas Cowboys Roster; What Are They Waiting For?
There was a time when the Dallas Cowboys enjoyed the label as “America’s Team.” However, the joke of an NFL organization has been a national punchline for the better part of the last decade. Josh Brent has been called every name in the book for being the cause of Jerry Brown‘s death last December, yet the Cowboys insist on keeping No. 92 on the roster.
For some reason, Dallas has allowed Brent to screw up on his second, third and fourth chances to prove himself. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones should take a page out of the New England Patriots‘ book and show Brent the door sooner rather than later. For example, the Pats wasted no time cutting Aaron Hernandez as the team released the tight end even before he was charged with first-degree murder.
Meanwhile, Brent is responsible for the death of a former Cowboys player and Dallas hasn’t done anything about it. To make matters worse, Brent violated his probation by testing positive for marijuana on Wednesday — this is the second time in a year that the defensive tackle has done so. Brent has been a non-factor in his three-year career, so why is he still on the Cowboys’ 90-man roster?
A seventh-round pick in the 2010 Supplemental Draft, Brent wasn’t destined to be much at the professional level, anyway. For now, we’re forced to sit back and wait for Brent to finally get released by Dallas. If No. 92 does get the pink slip from Jones, his NFL career will surely be over as no team wants to deal with this Texas-sized headache.
