Cowboys place Josh Brent on reserve-retired list

The Dallas Cowboys have placed defensive lineman Josh Brent on the NFL reserve-retired list. Brent was activated from the reserve-suspended list last November after he was convicted fromĀ  a car crash that killed teammate and friend Jerry Brown Jr. in December 2012. This marks the second retirement for Brent dating back to 2013, when he left football while facing charges. In January 2014, Brent was found guilty of intoxicated manslaughter. While Brent could have faced up to 20 years in prison for the incident, the judge sentenced him to 180 days in jail and 10 years of probation for the accident. He was also fined $10,000. Brent was released from prison in June 2014 and reported to a rehab facility. In September last year, the NFL suspended Brent for the first 10 games of the season.
