Lee Agrees To Four-Year Deal

Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Each of Dallas's seven draft picks will be ready for the opening of training camp tomorrow at the Alamodome in San Antonio.

Tim MacMahon of ESPNDallas.com has reported that the Cowboys have agreed to terms on a four-year deal with second round selection Sean Lee, a linebacker out of Penn State, the last of their selections to be signed. First round pick Dez Bryant agreed on a five-year deal with the team on Thursday.

Dallas traded up four spots, sending their fourth round pick to Philadelphia, to land Lee with the 55th overall selection in April's draft. Lee is described as a first round talent with suspect knees--he missed the entire 2008 season with torn ACL--but that didn't stop the Cowboys from snatching him up when they saw the opportunity in the second round.

Indeed, the former Nittany Lion seems to have a huge upside.

Dallas had him as 16th on their draft board, and he figures to make an immediate impact; he will battle Jason Williams for the nickel spot left vacant by Bobby Carpenter, and groom under starters Bradie James and Keith Brooking on the inside.
