Cowboys Place DT Josh Brent On Reserve/Retired List


The Dallas Cowboys are moving DT Josh Brent to the reserve/retired list on Friday, according to Nick Eatman.

Brent, 27, signed a one-year extension with the Cowboys in November of last year. He would have made a base salary of $745,000 for the 2015 season.

Brent served a 180-day prison sentence after he was convicted of intoxication manslaughter. He was released from prison in June and finished out the remainder of his sentence in a substance abuse center.

He wound up receiving a 10-game suspension from the NFL for the incident.

Despite the serious off-the-field issues, the Cowboys stuck by Brent and were optimistic about his NFL future. Last year, he was limited to appearing in just one game and recorded two tackles.
