Linebacker Sean Lee hopes to remain a Cowboy beyond 2013, but as he prepares for the final season of his rookie contract, his focus is on football, and not negotiations.
“I would love to stay in Dallas,” Lee told reporters this week, per ESPN Dallas. “I love this organization, love playing for the fans and this city, but when it comes to that, that’s not what my focus is on at all. It’s being the best I can be, helping us win and hopefully when that happens it happens, that stuff will play itself out.”
One would imagine that Lee is among the top priorities for the Dallas brass.
The Penn State product broke out in 2011 to lead the team in tackles--and it wasn’t even close--with 105 and tied for the team lead in interceptions with four. In 2012, Lee tied for fourth on the team in tackles, this despite missing the team’s final ten games with a fractured big toe.
2013 will be Lee’s fourth season in the league.
