IRVING, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys may not have to make a decision on the status of Josh Brent, with the NFL commissioner's office and a Dallas County judge lined up to make their decisions first.
Brent, charged with intoxication manslaughter after a December car accident that killed practice-squad linebacker Jerry Brown Jr., is scheduled for a September court date on that charge. But there is precedent with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on handing down one-year suspensions in a case like that and that suspension now could come before the start of NFL training camps on the weekend of July 20.
Brent, a part-time starter along the defensive line before the accident, continues to maintain a connection with the Cowboys. That connection could conceivably continue even after a ruling from the commissioner and from the judge.

According to the NFL’s official transaction log, the Dallas Cowboys have waived DT Rob Callaway from injured reserve with an injury settlement, reports ProFootballTalk.
He reportedly underwent microfracture knee surgery in June and was placed on the IR. He played in two games as a reserve in 2012, while spending the rest of the season on the practice squad.
According to Albert Breer of the NFL Network, the Cowboys and linebacker Sean Lee haven’t started working on a contract extension yet.
Also, heard today that there haven't been talks between Cowboys and Sean Lee on an extension, so we'll see where that goes.

The Dallas Cowboys had one fullback on their roster.
Now they have zero.
In a move that saves about $1.2 million on the salary cap, the Dallas Cowboys have cut Lawrence Vickers. This just shows how much fullbacks have come to be devalued in today’s NFL. And really, in a pass-happy league, unless your fullback can play tight end and catch the ball well, it makes sense that fullbacks...
The Dallas Cowboys announced the release of FB Lawrence Vickers on Friday.
Vickers, 30, was the team’s only fullback on their roster, so his release appears to be an indication that they are prepared to move forward with H-Back position rather than the traditional fullback.
David Helman of DallasCowboys.com notes that this move should create close to $1.2 million in cap space...
