    I truly hope he can at some point in his life he can conquer his demons, but I would prefer he do it without wearing a Cowboy uniform.

    To add to what I said, I do think Lee wants Brent back on the defense. Speculative on my part, but I do think it's interesting Lee was in attendance, and that it could indicate the plans ahead with Brent becoming available now. If a team considers each other like family, would a retired player still get that level of closeness with the team leader on defense? Maybe, but my inclination is to believe he is considered very much a part of the team. We'll see but I think that's how it will play out: We'll see him at camp.

    The fact that this is the NFL means most of these people work hard and play hard. So essentially, RKG means a talented football player. Like I said, vague terminology.

    I dunno, I am trying to find a way to turn this into a positive. He certainly hasn't made the best decisions, but allowing him to go back to something he's committed a large portion of his life too might just provide the only outlet and hope. Should Brent actually be able to turn it around, the ability to provide and make right for Brown's family would be huge...something I'd want in the same, miserable situation.

    I have no problem at all.

    Obviously, once he's ready to play again..

    I hope he comes to us first.

    Time for closure.

    Using that definition "smart players who are willing to work and to whom football is important" describes 90% of the players in the NFL.

    I think you just proved everybody's point, that "RKG" is just a generic term that could apply to almost every player on every team with just a handful of exceptions. Basically there is nothing special about "RKG", its just a catch phrase that doesn't really have any significant meaning to it.

    Excellent point.....................I would bring him back as a team counselor and let him work with the new rookies from the draft and with the community about the dangers of alcohol.

    As far as letting him back on the field as a to say no to would be portrayed by the media as the team supporting drunk driving or not caring about it.

    Even if that is not the case, that is how the media is going to portray it. I remember the outrage of Brent just being on the sidelines after that happened, it would be 1000 times worse if he was suiting up for the team.

    I would tell Brent, "sorry, but I cant have you wearing the uniform ever again because of the distraction and negative attention it would bring to the team".

    I don't agree, at all, that that definition applies to 90% of the NFL. And smart, hardworking, and passionate are all relative terms, anyway. He's obviously talking about qualities in these areas above the league average.

    No, people who complain about that description are simply complaining for the sake of complaining, instead of saving their criticisms for things worth actually addressing because they actually keep us from winning football games.

    Browns Mom for some reason sticks by this guy. That's pretty telling.

    Some people act like this guy is JJ Watt or something, it's Josh Brent a rotational 7th round draft pick, cut him and pick up a street fa. Just not worth the negative publicity and the risk and as you said he got in trouble again waiting on the trial.

    You take a chance on a Suh but Brent? It just ain't worth the risk, you kind find a Josh Brent on any NFL practice squad. I guess I just don't get it.

    Well, why does this organization deem some players as "undraftable" or take the off the board?
