Cowboys think Sean Lee will be back better than ever


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 “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.

    …back on the sidelines following his injuries.

    Sean Lee, linebacker, a man barely alive. Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology, we have the capability to build the first bionic man. Sean Lee can be that man – better, stronger, faster.

    They have 16 millions reasons to think that…

    The cowboys also think they’re going to the playoffs every single year. . .

    Sure he will.

    He’s never been the same since Golden Tate sent him into dreamland.

    Stephen is morphing into the great Jerry.

    Maybe you don’t have to “bet against him”, but it sure wouldn’t hurt to at least have a plan B in place… Sign a vet and draft a top 3 ILB in next year’s draft. Seems too simple, what am I missing here?

    Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, does it?

    This statement is, of course, the usual boilerplate for situations like Lee’s. He may be back, but there’s no way he’ll be better for having suffered the ACL injury. He may be just a tad slower, and it may stay in his head and the fear of re-injury may prevent him from selling out when necessary in the future. Having said that, I wish Lee well. It’s a real tough blow both to him and the Boys.

    Lee’s the kind of player that a #1 front office like Seattle would avoid. You need brains in football, too. #dynasty #HawkEnvy

    Of course he is going to say and think that. What else can he say?

    By next season, dude will have only played in 50 of the last 105 games over the past 7 seasons (2 college, 5 pro).

    Sean “Brian Bosworth” Lee

    Love the guy but his body is saying its time to think about retirement. Think Cowboys are practicing wishful thinking and looking at our defense I totally understand.
    If we are to have a wining season the offense needs to establish a big time ground and pound running game because nothing exposes a weak defense like fatigue from being on the field to long. This is what happened in several games we lost in the fourth quarter last year. Last but not least we need to pray for less injuries on both sides of the ball but of course the defensive side. Perhaps better conditioning and diet might be worth considering. We must find a way to keep key players heathy because we are not loaded with talent.

    Great news!
    Is he also ahead of schedule in his recovery?

    This is pure hype, this time is comes from Boss Hogs son. I like Sean Lee, but at some point reality has to set in. Lee was hurt in college, and every year with the Cowboys his knees give out on him. If it could be repaired, you would think somebody would have done the job by now. Some knee problems simply can’t be fixed well enough to resume a professional sports career.

    How many time has Roy Oden tried to reviver his basketball career and failed.

    What’s with these wimpy football players these days?In the old days players would rarely get hurt during the regular season let alone in practice.

  22. bornahawker says: May 30, 2014 11:31 PM

    Yeah, Sure, You Betcha…..

    Notice Jerry is now covering himself with contracts by making it where they are paid less if/when injured and not able to play. Can’t blame him.

    He is no Adrian Peterson
