The Dallas Cowboys have gone out of their way to support Josh Brent, their former defensive tackle who was convicted of intoxication manslaughter following a car accident that left teammate Jerry Brown Jr. dead, and the team is prepared to support him yet again now that his jail sentence is over.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said if Brent is reinstated by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, the team will make sure there's a roster spot for him.
“We wouldn’t have it today but we would make a roster spot,” Jones told the Dallas Morning News.
The Morning News said Brent will meet with Goodell on Thursday.
Brent was released last week from a drug and alcohol rehab facility. He was allowed to spend the last 45 days of his 180-day jail sentence there.

He faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted of intoxicated manslaughter, though he could also get probation.
