Cowboys’ linebacker, Sean Lee, along with the rest of the Dallas Cowboys, saw their season end last night under the lights in the Los Angeles Memorial Colosseum at the hands of the Rams. Sean Lee’s career in Dallas may have come to an end as well.
Following the loss, Sean Lee informed reporters that he would consult with his family first before coming to a decision if he’s played his last snap.
“Obviously I’ll talk to my family and see what the deal is,” Lee told SportsDay’s Jon Machota.
Lee has had an impressive career overshadowed by injuries. Lee has never played a full season as he’s dealt with numerous injuries over the years. Most recently, a hamstring injury kept him out for several games. This allowed rookie linebacker, Leighton Vanderbilt Esch, to show what he could do for the Cowboys defense. Vander Esch effectively won the job.
At one point, Sean Lee was the soul of this Dallas defense. However, times change, circumstances change, and that’s just the way the NFL goes.
Lee has a decorated 9-year career with 688 tackles, 13 interceptions, and 2 Pro Bowl selections.
