04:36 PM ET 12.16 | On Sunday afternoon, the Dallas Cowboys will take the field for the second time following the death of their teammate Jerry Brown, who was killed in a fatal car accident. Cowboys nose tackle Josh Brent was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash and has been charged with intoxication manslaughter. Brent and Brown have a strong connection. The two were roommates, best friends and some even say they were more like brothers. The two had been teammates since their time at the University of Illinois. While Brent has to live with what he did, Brown's mother, Stacey Jackson, wanted to let Brent know that he has been forgiven for the unfortunate accident that took his life. In fact, Brown's mother doesn't want to see Brent prosecuted following the intoxication manslaughter charges. "I've forgiven him, because he has enough on his plate with just reliving the whole thing over and over, and that's going to be for the rest of his life," Jackson said.
