Jerry Jones: Brent decision "Imminent"

By Jean-Jacques Taylor

MIAMI -- Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he expects a decision soon on whether former defensive tackle Josh Brent will be suspended by the NFL for his role in a car accident that resulted in practice squad linebacker Jerry Brown being killed in December 2012.

"We expect to hear something imminently," Jones said after Saturday's 25-20 loss to Miami.

Brent retired before last season. He was convicted of intoxication manslaughter and spent nearly five months in jail before spending the last 45 days of his sentence at a drug and alcohol rehab center.

Jones has said the Cowboys will have a roster spot for Brent if commissioner Roger Goodell lets him play. He met with the commissioner earlier this month.
