    Tragedy strikes again for the NFL. Dallas Cowboys player Josh Brent was charged with manslaughter Saturday after the car he was driving crashed, killing teammate Jerry Brown Jr. Police say Brent, 24, was intoxicated and driving at a “high speed” when his vehicle barreled into a curb, causing it to flip before it landed on a nearby service road. Brent failed the sobriety test officers administered when they arrived on the scene and was immediately taken to Irving Jail. Brown was pronounced dead at a hospital nearby that night. Team owner Jerry Jones issued a statement, expressing his “deepest sympathy” for Brown’s family.
