Jerry Brown spent years waiting for his chance to play in the NFL.
The St. Louis native played for arena league football teams in Canada and Jacksonville before landing in the Alamo City earlier this year to play for the San Antonio Talons’ in their inaugural season.
In May, Brown got an opportunity most arena league players dream about — he was signed as a free agent with the Indianapolis Colts.
The dream ended early Saturday when Brown, a member of the Dallas Cowboy’s practice squad since late October, was killed in a one-car accident. He was 25.
Cowboys teammate Josh Brent was behind the wheel. Brent, 24, who failed a field sobriety test at the scene, has been charged with intoxication manslaughter.
Brown was unresponsive when police arrived at the wreck and later pronounced dead at an Irving-area hospital.
