James Lang-US PRESSWIRE

Jerry Brown was killed in an auto accident. His teammate, Josh Brent, was reportedly driving the vehicle the two were in while intoxicated.

A week after the tragedy involving Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher his girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins, we get news today that former Colts linebacker Jerry Brown is dead. Brown was killed in an auto accident, per reports from Dallas. He was 25 years old.

Dallas police have confirmed that Brown as a passenger in a vehicle driven by Cowboys NT Josh Brent. Brent and Brown were teammates. Brent had reportedly been driving while intoxicated, and the vehicle the two were in flipped over. Brent has been placed under arrest for intoxication manslaughter.

Brown signed with the Colts on May 23rd as a rookie free agent. He spent time on the practice squad this season and was promoted to the active roster prior to the Jets game in week 6. He eventually landed with the Cowboys on their practice squad. Both Brown and Brent played their college ball at Illinois.

Thoughts go out to Brown's family and friends, as well as his teammates in Dallas and Indianapolis.

[UPDATE]: Per Jerry Brown's Facebook, via a retweet from The Big Lead, he was looking forward to being a dad soon. So tragic.

From Clarence E. Hill of the Star-Telegram:

Per a source, Brent was returning from partying at Club Privae in Dallas and was traveling at a high rate of speed before losing control of his vehicle. When police arrived on the scene, Brent was responsive, the deceased was not. He was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police conducted a field sobriety test on Brent and also drew blood before taking him to jail.
