The nation has lost two additional NFL players: One to prison and the other to death. Linebacker on the Dallas Cowboys practice squad, Jerry Brown Jr., was killed in an early morning car crash in Irving, Texas. His teammate, nose tackle Josh Brent, has been arrested on an intoxicated manslaughter charge, according to police. Brent was driving the vehicle at the time of the crash.
“Our investigators are certain that they were traveling well above the posted speed limit, and they base that on the physical evidence that is out on the scene — gouge marks, skid marks, where the vehicle initially impacted the curb and to where the vehicle came to rest,” said Irving police spokesman John Argumaniz. After failing the sobriety test, Brent was taken to a local jail and booked on the second-degree felony charge. He faces up to 20 years in prison and a $10,000 fine, if convicted. Results from Brent’s blood alcohol test are still pending.
As friends and family reflect on their final moments with Brown, many are reminded of the last Facebook post he shared on Nov. 29 about becoming a father and a husband.
Sometimes when I actually get a chance to get away from football I think of how bad I want a family (wife, children) and how the fast life isn’t as fun as it use to be after living it for so long. I mean I do have my lil one coming soon and don’t get me wrong I’m overly excited to c her and b everything for her. Its just the circumstances I bring her into aren’t nearly as ideal as I’d like. I had what I wanted in a woman just without the seed. That relationship has been soiled due to the seed I planted. My only hopes are to become a better man and build a stronger connection both ways!!
The child’s expected delivery date and the name of the child’s mother are unknown.
