Before suffering a season-ending big toe injury in the Week 7 victory over the Panthers in Carolina, Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee may well have been on his way to the Pro Bowl. Despite missing the last ten games of the season, Lee finished the year tied for sixth on the team in tackles with 58. He also had an interception and a forced fumble.
2013 will be Lee’s fourth year in the league and, his first playing as a Mike linebacker in a 4-3 system. Helped by the move, according to scout and analyst Bryan Broaddus, it very well could end with Lee’s first ever trip to Hawaii.
“He is just a natural,” Broaddus said of Lee this week, on the team’s official website. “The front office will look to extend him soon and rightfully so because of his ability and what he means to this team with his leadership. Players and fans around the National Football League have an idea of who Sean Lee is, but come February he will take his place among the best of the best and then everyone will know.
“This should be the first of many trips for the talented linebacker.”
