Insight: Brent killed his teammate Jerry Brown last year in a car accident. Toxicology reports showed that Brent was well over the legal drinking limit when the crash took place. Brent retired last offseason after three seasons in the NFL. Considering the 20-year maximum sentence he was facing, it seems like Brent got off pretty easy.

Insight: Brent is dealing with all kinds of legal issues right now and football is probably the last thing on his mind. Brent killed his teammate Jerry Brown in a drunk driving accident back in December and is now facing manslaughter charges. Since then, he has failed multiple drug tests, which resulted in an 11-day stay in county jail earlier this month. The 25-year-old recorded 44 tackles in his three-year career.
