Former Dallas Cowboy Josh Brent was released from jail on Sunday.

A jury found former Dallas Cowboy Josh Brent guilty of intoxication manslaughter and sentenced him to 180 days in jail with 10 years probation back in January.

The former nose tackle was charged with intoxication manslaughter after allegedly driving drunk and causing a December 2012 wreck that killed his passenger, friend and teammate, Jerry Brown.

Brent announced his retirement from pro-football, Thursday, July 18, 2013.

Brent played three seasons for the Cowboys, recording 65 tackles, 1.5 sacks, five pressures, one pass breakup and one forced fumble in 39 career games with five starts.

He was originally selected in the seventh-round of the 2010 Supplemental Draft out of Illinois.

It certainly pays to be a football player or any kind of professional sports as they are exempt from the laws that the rest of us have to abide by. Same thing goes on in college and high school sports. That's why high schools have multi million dollar stadiums and kids graduating that can't count back change from a 20 dollar bill. Kids are really getting smarter if you count computers, cell phones, play stations and X- boxes.
