Sean Lee is down, again. But the Cowboys aren’t counting him out.
Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones said during a radio appearance on 1310 The Ticket that he thinks Lee will return to form after tearing his ACL in OTAs this week.
“He’s the last person in the world I would bet against,” Jones said, via Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com. “There’s no one more intense, more driven and more determined than Sean Lee.”
Jones said after talking to Lee, the linebacker is “more determined than ever.”
“You’ve got to believe at some point something good will happen to him and happen to us,” Jones said.
Lee hasn’t played a full season yet, and missed five games last year, after signing a contract extension worth up to $51 million.
Lee won’t see that amount since large chunks are tied to participation, such as the $1.5 million in future salary next year which he could have added to his guaranteed $2.5 million base.
