Josh Brent's name wasn't mentioned nearly as much in the Cowboys' locker room as Jerry Brown's was Sunday. But while honoring Brown, the Cowboys vowed to support Brent.
"As far as Josh goes, you know how close we are," Cowboys defensive end Marcus Spears said. "We all are hurting and in pain and feeling devastated. At this point, you’ve got to be brothers, through the tough times and get to him and try to encourage him and comfort him, because there are going to be some tough days ahead. That’s no secret. We won’t run away from him, probably like the world did.”
"We certainly lost the life of Jerry Brown," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. "It's just a tragedy that has happened here with Josh as well, and we want to and are going to be supportive of him."
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett spoke to the players about both Brown and Brent, who were best friends after being roommates and teammates at Illinois as well as in Dallas.
"You can only imagine how he’s feeling right now," Cowboys linebacker Anthony Spencer said of Brent. "It could have been any of us. It really could have. We’ve all been in that situation where we’ve gone out and had a few drinks and then drove home, whatever the situation was, it really could have been any of us in this locker room that it happened to. It’s hard not to feel for him."
