Stephen Jones calls Sean Lee 'the leader of our football team' after show of support at Brent trial

Sean Lee’s show of support in the trial of Josh Brent is an example of his leadership, Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said.

“Certainly doesn’t surprise me. That’s Sean – the leader of our football team,” he said.

A jury deliberated for a second day Wednesday in Brent’s intoxication manslaughter trial. Brent played defensive tackle three seasons for the Cowboys until retiring last July, having missed the last four games of 2012 following his arrest after the one-car accident in which a teammate, linebacker Jerry Brown, died.

“Sean Lee’s just a class act, a leader, supportive of his teammates,” Jones said. “Not unlike Troy did with Michael many, many years ago. Leaders lead, and he’s showing Josh – they were teammates together – that he supports him.”
