IRVING (CBSDFW.COM) — The agent for Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman Josh Brent says he will appeal his 10-game suspension handed down by the league on Tuesday.
Brent was conditionally reinstated to the league, but is prohibited from participating in team activities for the first six weeks. He will be eligible to play when the Cowboys come off their bye week in Week 12.
Agent Peter Schaffer told Shan & RJ on 105.3 The Fan that he will appeal the suspension, which he believes is unfair.
“The Commissioner’s order was just not fair. We just don’t think based on precedent that it’s applicable,” said Schaffer. “We’re going to appeal it based on Josh’s collective bargaining rights and move forward.”
