LB Sean Lee’s Career Is Almost Up, And He Knows It

    Entering the , most would agree the ' window is as wide as can be. They've got a plethora of young talent on long term contracts, and have potentially top tier playmakers like and on the cheapest contracts of their career.

    The time is now in Dallas, but the future feels pretty bright too.

    The same can't be said for veteran . A key leader on the Cowboys for almost a decade, Lee will turn 34 in just a few weeks. And he knows the end of his football career is near.

    As Matthew Lenix wrote about earlier this week, Lee gave some interesting quotes to 's Todd Archer around his age, his place on the team, and his preparation for the upcoming season despite the ongoing global pandemic.

    “You feel like the old man when you realize some of these mid-, late-'90s birthdays of the guys you're playing with” – Sean Lee.

    Once the best player on the Cowboys defense, Sean Lee has been forced to take a backseat to both and . The two young linebackers took the league by storm in 2018, leaving Lee to fight for snaps in base packages and fill in when needed due to .

    Both Smith and Vander Esch had up-and-down 2019 campaigns, though, and Lee capitalized famously during their matchup with the .

    Sean Lee is clearly still respected in the locker room, and as cliche as it sounds, he is in some ways a player-coach for the Dallas defense. He, like the rest of the Cowboys, is being forced to adjust to a brand new during this strange in which they've yet to have any face to face meetings or practices.

    Only making his final run towards a Super Bowl ring that much more complicated.

    How many players in the NFL play for the love of the game? I would say very few! I might be mistaken but I believe that SL does! Would someone that knows the details about the money that he left on the table a couple seasons ago please post the details ? ……. There again what kind of team would we have if every player had the mindset that SL does?

    Antonio Crump

    SL is a good player hope that he stay’s around a few more year’s and stay healthy we’ll be fine at Line backer

    One of my favorite cowboys in recent yrs super talented and super classy all way down the line. Was great mentor and example for many young players coming thru the cowboys pipeline.

    Lee MIGHT have been a HOF’er if he could have play ANY FULL SEASON!! is injuries never allowed us to see how great he have been


    Jerry should get some credit for Lee being a Cowboy. He was the first of those 2nd round “reaches due to injury risk”. Lee, Bruce Carter, and Jaylon Smith. All were hits. Carter became a really nice LB that disappeared after chasing the money to TB.
