DALLAS (AP) -- The Dallas County district attorney says he's not surprised that Cowboys defensive tackle Josh Brent failed two drug tests while out on bond facing an intoxication manslaughter charge.
Brent was charged after a December car crash that killed practice squad player Jerry Brown. Court records show his bond was revoked after he tested positive twice for marijuana.
District Attorney Craig Watkins told KRLD-FM last week that it's clear to him that Brent is struggling with addiction. Watkins says that Brent "still uses alcohol and illicit drugs," and he wants him jailed for the crash.
Those comments drew protests from Brent's attorney, George Milner, who on Tuesday called them inappropriate. Milner says he'll ask a judge to force Watkins to comply with ethics rules.

Former Dallas Cowboys Pro Bowl wide receiver Drew Pearson hasn't always been a Dez Bryant fan.
As recently as last October, the original No. 88 was criticizing the current No. 88 for not living up to the expectations of the number that was also worn by Pro Football Hall of Famer Michael Irvin.
But Pearson seems to be buying in to the success Bryant had during the second half...

I am so tired of hearing about the past of Dez Bryant. The past of the former first round pick of the Dallas Cowboys has received a lot of attention during his NFL career and Bryant has not always done the best job of staying out of news.
Bryant also shares my dislike about hearing about his past regularly.
“I just wanted to know why is my background relevant...

Tweet Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Cole Beasley doesn’t look that intimidating on the football field. Standing just 5’8” and weighing only 180 pounds, his stature isn’t one that really screams elite athlete. Beasley caught just 15 passes in his rookie season last year for only 128 yards. However, this video of him throwing down some [...]
With Aaron Hernandez facing murder charges, and scouts and executives wondering how his violent tendencies slipped under the radar, the question of proper background checks prior to the NFL Draft have now come up.
Former Cowboys scout Bryan Broaddus joined G-Bag Nation on 105.3 FM The Fan last week and talked about athletes that had personal baggage and might have been too dangerous...
If you were to guess a Dallas Cowboys receiver who could throw down in a game of basketball it is unlikely that Cole Beasley would be your first guess.
Maybe it should have been.
At 5’8″ the 24-year-old out of Southern Methodist can dunk a basketball with a mean reverse.
Beasley joined the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent in 2012 and caught 15 passes for 128 yards.
