Sean Lee Embracing New Role With Dallas Cowboys

Sean Lee of the Dallas Cowboys is embracing his new role. What does it mean for the Cowboys?

Dallas Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee was expected to be cut by the team during the offseason. This due to his age and injury history. Also, as well as the emergence of Leighton Vander Esch. Esch, who made the Pro Bowl as a rookie while standing in for Lee, who missed most of the season with an injury.

Despite his injury history, the Cowboys decided to bring Lee back. This was after he agreed to restructured contract that will pay him $3.5 million and give him the chance to earn $7 million based on playing time and a playoff appearance.

Lee could have made more money playing for another team, but he chose to stay with the only NFL franchise he has ever played for.

“I mean, it’s gone too fast,” said Lee, who was the Cowboys’ second-round pick in 2010. “It’s been a dream come true. I’ve been so blessed to be a part of this organization, to play with some incredible football players. I’ve been lucky to have a lot of faith put in me by the Joneses, stuck with me through a lot of injury and tough times; for me, the ultimate goal is to be able to bring a championship here. By now, I was hoping we would have one, but every time we step in here it’s a blessing. It’s so much fun. I feel like a rookie half the time I walk in here.”

Lee, who will turn 33 in July, will be playing a new position this season after being moved from the weakside linebacker position to the strongside linebacker position that was previously held by Damien Wilson.

“The situations, some of them are very similar to what I’ve done in the past. Where I’m off the ball and able to run, sometimes on the ball; try to pride myself on being versatile, being able to adapt, being able to play different positions and learn them and hopefully become an expert at it,” Lee said. “I have a ton of help. I love being out there for the Dallas Cowboys, and I think I’ll improve as I go.”
