Jerry Jones has an idea of when Josh Brent will be reinstated by the NFL. But the Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager declined to reveal any more during a Tuesday morning radio interview.
"I have indication, but I’m not at liberty to talk about when," Jones said on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM]. "I certainly have had indication that he’ll be reinstated, but the commissioner, on matters of league punishment, moves at his own rate."
Jones has already said he would clear a roster spot for Brent once the 26-year-old defensive tackle is allowed to return.
Brent, who met with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell last month, spent four and a half months in jail after being convicted of intoxication manslaughter following a car crash that killed Brent’s good friend and former teammate Jerry Brown.
Brent retired in July 2013 after playing three seasons with the Cowboys.
