    LOL. I can't believe you'd think they wanted to release him weeks ago. Why would they want to do that?

    Oh I know, would have been a way bigger story.

    Personally, I think it is atrocious to cut someone just for an arrest but that is the Patriot way I guess.

    You don't make a huge decision like this in a day. This investigation has been going on for a while now and the fact they had the paperwork ready to go, had an official statement prepared and processed all of it the moment he was released makes it rather obvious.

    I know it's been brought up already and it by no means diminishes what happened. But Jerry Brown got in that car of his own freewill, arguably knowing the circumstances of what had gone on that night and the probable condition his friend was in.

    I wonder what the public opinion would be, if Brown had let his friend drive off that night alone, knowing all this, and Brent had wrecked his car, been killed or injured, or even worse, killed/injured others on that hwy?

    In a very real way, as unpopular as this may be, Jerry Brown is as culpable for what happened that night, as if he had been behind the wheel.

    Article in the NFL Zone thread said that the Pats had decided they would release him last week if there was an arrest related to the investigation.

    Maybe that's what Reality is alluding to.

    Intentional acts and reckless acts are treated very differently by the legal system. So why shouldn't teams treat them differently as well? People who are trying to compare Brent to Hernandez have an agenda

    Exactly which implies they knew about this well before it and had discussed it and decided on it leading up to that point.

    The article stressed that the Pats didn't have anymore info than anyone else, but... the decision to release him came from on high.

    You know that Hernandez was obstructing an investigation into a murder. You also know that Brent cooperated. The difference is night and day IMO. I am not saying Brent should not be released. I expect he will be, once there are legal grounds to do so.

    Yeah you are so correct. DWI is exactly the same thing as murder. Especially a murder that is planned out and evidence destroyed by a suspect afterwards.

    And no one said Brent acted correctly. But to compare the 2 events is idiotic.

    You don't know if it's in his best interests or not. If he did not commit the shooting himself, it might very well be in his best interests.

    Agenda? So you endorse having a person who killed his teammate on this team? The Cowboys should have cut him a long time ago. They could have provided assistance to him but he shouldn't be on this team. Is he Demarcus Ware? No. He's an average player that has no business being here. Again, the Cowboys should provide counseling at their expense.

    Teams always say they don't know more, but their actions and/or comments to the media usually prove otherwise. :D

    The Hernandez situation is way higher on a sinister scale, there was some planning there. Brent exact opposite, if there had been a plan it would not have happened.
