    OXNARD, Calif. – All the hype about Sean Lee and Bruce Carter is justified, as far as the Cowboys’ other starting linebacker is concerned.

    “Man, Bruce is special with how athletic, how strong he is, how fast and everything. It’s crazy,” Justin Durant said. “And Sean is probably the best at playmaking recognition that I’ve seen. He can diagnose. He knows more than the coaches, man. It’s just crazy.”

    What does Durant, who signed a two-year, $2.4 million deal in free agency to start at the Sam linebacker for the Cowboys, bring to the party?

    “I’ve been in it for six years and I’m just a little older guy,” Durant said. “I’ve seen a lot. I’ve played in some big games and stuff like that. I think I just bring a sense of calm to it to try to make it mesh more as a unit. That’s the thing that I think I can bring.

    Durant was an excellent pick up. Was a solid player in Detroit the past few years, really suprised we got him so cheap.

    Durant isn't a slouch so that's pretty good coming from him... I think we'll see a difference with this 4-3 scheme, Lee and Carter fit it much better.
