Inside linebacker Sean Lee has battled injuries through much of his recent career, the latest being a big toe injury that kept him sidelined for the final ten games of the 2012 season. But Lee doesn’t intend on slowing down any, even if that ultimately means a shorter career.
“I’m going to try to play a certain way, play hard,” Lee told BaD Radio on 1310-AM The Ticket, via the Dallas Morning News. “I don’t think I would be successful if I didn’t play that way. I’d rather cut a few years off my career and play the right way than go soft and not play right. If injuries come, they come. But I’m going to sell out on the field and try to sell out every game. I think that’s the only way we really can win, if everybody does that.”
Lee’s rookie contract is set to expire at season’s end but, at the moment, he’s more focused on learning the new defense brought in by Monte Kiffin than any negotiations with Dallas.
“I’m just happy to be playing football,” he said. “I really don’t think about that stuff. I just want to be on the field, staying healthy. The ultimate goal is to win the Super Bowl. For me, that’s all I think about non-stop, ‘How can I get better as a football player? How can I help my team win? What can I do to make my teammates better so we hopefully can compete for a Super Bowl every year?’ That’s my main concern.”
