“I do believe in paying your debt,” Jones said. “Paying your debt, paying the price to the extent that he does that.

“We have stood with Josh Brent from the very beginning and continue [to do so]. Josh Brent deserves an opportunity. He has made a terrible mistake. He knows it. I know firsthand he has contrition. I know that. And so yes, I will consider giving him an opportunity.”
