Josh Brent’s return to the NFL is official. The Cowboys have activated the defensive tackle less than two years after a fatal crash that killed Brent’s teammate and best friend, Jerry Brown. Brent was the driver and tested positive for DUI that night.

To make room for Brent of the Cowboys active roster, a current player has to be cut. There has been no word as to who the player will be.
Garrett says he hasn’t yet informed the player they’ll cut in favor of Brent. So he declined to share with us.

Jerry Brown’s family has stood firmly supporting Brent throughout the tragedy.
