On Monday, owner Jerry Jones said that if Josh Brent is reinstated by the NFL the Cowboys would create a roster spot for the defensive tackle. Brent, who retired in 2013, was sentenced to 180 days in jail and 10 years of probation in January after he was convicted of intoxication manslaughter for the December 2012 crash that killed friend and teammate Jerry Brown Jr., a practice squad linebacker. Brent was released from jail June 15 and allowed to spend the final 45 days of his jail sentence in rehabilitation. He is scheduled to have a meeting with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on Thursday, according to Jones.
