Josh Brent Signs Extension With Cowboys

Cowboys defensive lineman Josh Brent has signed an extension that will keep him with the team through 2015, reports Field Yates of

The extension does not include any guaranteed money, but carries a base salary of $745,000.

Brent returned to practice today, while serving a ten-game suspension stemming from a car accident in which he was driving under the influence of alcohol that resulted in the death of his teammate Jerry Brown in December of 2012. Brent will be eligible to return to the field on November 23rd, when the Cowboys play the Giants.
