CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

A member of the Dallas Cowboys is dead Saturday and one of his teammates is behind bars.

Police say practice squad member Jerry Brown was killed in a single-car accident early Saturday morning.

He signed with the Cowboys just this week.

Police charged defensive lineman, Josh Brent, with intoxication manslaughter.

They say the three year veteran was speeding when his car hit a curb and flipped over.

In June 2009, Brent was convicted of drunk driving in Illinois.

He and Brown were teammates in college there.
