Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones told reporters on Tuesday that they’re open to bringing back defensive tackle Josh Brent once he’s released from prison for killing his former teammate Jerry Brown while driving drunk. He’s currently serving 180 days in jail.
“We’ll certainly look at that,” Jones said, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “The league will have a big say in when he can come back. We’ll certainly evaluate that situation when it comes, but I certainly wouldn’t rule it out.”
The Cowboys have already talked to the NFL about Brent.
“Obviously, they’re looking at it, and we’ll kind of see how it goes,” Jones said. “Obviously, he sat out a year. The bigger thing is that Josh has to see where his priorities are. A lot of things have to be determined there.
“Obviously, Josh has paid a price. That’s a tragic, tragic accident. Right now, he’s doing what he needs to be doing. We’ll evaluate things as they move forward.”
