DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) – I got a chance to have dinner with Josh Brent a few days ago, in advance of his meeting with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. And I exchanged communications with him on Thursday following the possible-reinstatement meeting in New York.
I can tell Dallas Cowboys fans this, as I noted on our 105.3 The Fan pregame show before Cowboys-at-Chargers: Josh went in feeling optimistic. He came out feeling optimistic.
And before, during and after, he is absolutely remorseful.
Josh, of course, was at the wheel when a horrific accident took the life of his friend and teammate Jerry Brown. He has spent time paying the price legally and has served his time. A cloud is lifting; his spirits are high, his fitness is good, and the dark place he was in a year ago is not so dark.
Josh has expressed to me a desire to help a football team that he’s always viewed as his family. He believes he can be a key contributor here and that nothing short of Super Bowl contention must be the goal.
“We can win,” Josh tells me. “And I can help.”
