    The Dallas Cowboys know they have one of the best young linebackers in football. The team made sure on Wednesday that Sean Lee remains a Cowboy for a very long time.

    Nick Eatman of the team's official website first reported that Lee was in the process of signing a six-year contract extension with the team.

    NFL.com's Ian Rapoport and Albert Breer reported that Lee's contract is for $7 million per year, according to a source who has seen the deal. Breer added that escalators can take it to $51 million in new money over six years, via a source involved in the negotiation. Lee has to play 80 percent of the team's snaps to reach those escalators, which is notable considering his struggles with injuries.

    "Obviously I've had injuries and I've said I need to find a way to stay on this field," Lee told theCowboys' official website. "And the contract is extremely fair. If I'm on the field the whole year, I'll be able to get paid. But if I do have injuries, it protects the Cowboys and I think that's fantastic, especially with the injuries I've dealt with in the past.

    That's not a bad contract. Plus incentives for play time. This team is being built for the long haul with young strong players.

    Nice length, nice value.. great signing.

    To think.. just a few years ago we gave Orlando Scandrick an extension worth over 5 million a year, and now Lee gets 7 mill a year.

    Hopefully, we've learned our lesson.
