Source: Cowboys sign Josh Brent to one-year, $745,000 extension

The Dallas Cowboys quietly signed defensive tackle Josh Brent to a one-year, $745,000 contract extension for 2015 late this week, according to a league source.

Brent got no signing bonus or guaranteed money.

He started practicing this week.

Brent is serving a 10-game suspension stemming from him driving a car while under the influence of alcohol that killed Cowboys linebacker and friend Jerry Brown in 2012.

Brent can be activated from the reserve-suspended list the week of the Cowboys' Nov. 23 game against the New York Giants.

Brent was convicted of intoxication manslaughter. He served time in jail and 45 days in a treatment facility.
