According to the Dallas Morning News, Cowboys’ nose tackle Josh Brent will not play in 2013 after being charged with intoxication manslaughter last year when he killed his friend and teammate Jerry Brown after flipping his vehicle multiple times after a night of drinking. Josh Brent won’t play for the Cowboys in 2013 but the club doesn’t want to comment on the nose tackle publicly until the NFL rules on his status, sources said. Club officials are reluctant to acknowledge what will happen with Brent because there are so many moving parts. His trial on intoxication manslaughter for the death of close friend and teammate, Jerry Brown Jr., has not been set. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has yet to hand down a suspension. But as the league meetings came to an end Wednesday afternoon, sources said they expect Goodell to rule soon. Cowboys management and players are serious in upholding their vow to support Brent emotionally through these trying times, but there are business concerns tied to the player’s status. Brent is currently carried on the Cowboys roster with a base salary of $630,000. For a team that finds itself only a whisker under the salary cap, removing Brent’s hit from the payroll would provide at least minimal room to maneuver in free agency. I know the Cowboys are trying to support Brent as long as they can, but they need to release him and save a little money. His NFL career is more than likely over anyway.     Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();
