Irving, Texas – Josh Brent, defensive tackle for the Dallas Cowboys, has retired from the football team after being charged with manslaughter in connection with a fatal crash. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the decision by Brent, 25, was announced Thursday with the release of a statement in which he suggested he needed to focus on other matters at this time in his life.
Brent is quoted by the AP as saying in a statement provided by the team, “I am at a point where my main focus is all about getting the priorities in my life in order… Those priorities are more important than football. Doing the right things in life are more important than football. I love the game very much. I love my teammates, but this is the right thing for me to do.”
Brent is facing charges of intoxication manslaughter for a December accident in which his teammate Jerry Brown was killed. If convicted, he could receive up to 20 years in prison.
