The bad news continues to pour in from the NFL. This morning, nose tackle Josh Brent was arrested for intoxication manslaughter after a one-vehicle accident that killed his former college and current teammate Jerry Brown (pictured in the second thumbnail). Brent was speeding down State Highway 114 before hitting a curb that caused his car to flip at around 2:30 a.m. Brown was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.

This is the third tragedy to happen to the NFL within the past week. Our sincerest condolences to everyone affected.
