    It’s a tough time in football. Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman Josh Brent is being held on $500,000 bond the day after being charged with intoxication manslaughter in a drunk-driving accident that killed close friend and teammate Jerry Brown, Jr. “I’d say the bond is 16 times higher than it would have been for anybody that doesn’t play for the Dallas Cowboys,” his lawyer George Milner said.
