Jerry Brown died in a car crash early Saturday morning when the vehicle his friend and teammate Josh Brent was driving hit a curb and flipped. Brent was arrested and is being charged with intoxicated manslaughter. What makes the story even more sad is that Brown indicated in a recent Facebook post that was on his way to becoming a father. He also talked about no longer enjoying the fast life. “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,” Brown wrote in a post dated Nov. 29. “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!!” Reading a post like this makes the events even more tragic. Brown seemed like he was ready to give up the fast life, but one more night out coupled with some awful decisions cost him his life. It also means a child will be growing up without a father. Just an awful situation all around. We wish the best for his family. The original Facebook post is below:
