Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee has a simple goal for 2016: Play a full season.
Lee is coming off his first Pro Bowl season after being named an injury replacement for Chiefs defender Justin Houston. Lee started all 14 games he played in and led the Cowboys in tackles (156) and a career high 11 tackles for losses.
No. 50 laid out his personal goals for the season.
"I have to step up my leadership," he said. "For me it's finding a way to play 16 games. I haven't done that in my entire career but I'm working to do that. I'm working to play at a higher level."
Lee said his knee isn't an issue.
"My knee is ready to go," he said. "One hundred percent."
Lee may be one of the most respected players on the team for his work ethic, character and leadership.
Injuries and availability have never allowed Lee to become a NFL household name on defense like Luke Kuechly of the Carolina Panthers.
