Irving Police report that Jerry Brown Jr., a 25-year old currently on the Cowboys’ practice roster, was killed in the accident.

Early in the morning on Saturday, around 2:21 a.m., Brent was driving a 2007 Mercedes westbound in the 1400 block of the service road of SH-114 when his vehicle hit a curb and flipped at least one time before coming to rest in the middle of the service road.
