    he’s maximized every ounce of natural ability his body gave him. He looks like his natural body weight should be like 190. I think his hamstrings are never gonna cooperate and he’s gonna be our head defensive coordinator after playing a few more seasons.

    But there’s potential here imo for him to step aside and avoid all this consternation.

    If the Cowboys were smart they would try to keep him on the team somehow.

    Reduce his role, make him a coach, whatever you gotta do but keep him in that building.


    He can still play and he may actually extend his career playing as a backup.

    $7,000,000 in cap savings and only $3,000,000 in dead cap if traded or released pre or post June 2019. Blasphemy right but see D ware

    I think he either takes a paycut or this is his last year as a player (they will keep him as the LB coach). He's just not worth $7,000,000 when we need to get money for a lot of guys especially DLaw.

    There's that and also I think Lee is the type of guy who takes tremendous pride in his play and his contributions.

    He's only played 5 games this year and in some of those he hasn't looked like himself. Does Sean wants to continue his career as an oft-injured back-up, semi-contributor? I doubt it.

    I'd like to see the team offer him a full-time coaching gig w/a financial package that honors his service to the team.

    I think they can milk another year out of him in a reduced role and a pay cut.

    If there's fire in his belly, he will want to take it to the field.

    Those, who, without thinking or knowing what it takes to be an NFL coach, or the progression a coach needs to get to the NFL, are just plain stupid.
    On the other hand, on the Cowboys team, where a nobody like Kellen Moore can go from playing to coaching, anything is possible.

    Still, in the NFL, just because you are popular or a good player and have the correct skin color, that does not confer upon you the right to leap-frog 1,000 other qualified coaches to coach in the NFL.

    With all due respect Gimme, Sean Lee has been a Linebacker Coach since his second or third year in the league. He without a doubt will be an excellent defensive coach.

    Cut him back to 3m base with 200k per game on active roster like they did with Witten

    He's been a coach?
    Well, boy howdy, bloke, guess I was wrong!:rolleyes:
    And this will be distressing news to the 1,000 other more qualified coaches --- of all colors --- to know they will have to wait because of your enthusiasm for a brittle player. I mean, he can play, correct. Then of course he knows how to coach!

    He’ll go to another team and all of a sudden get healthy. He’ll have 3-4 more all pro healthy years.

    See Terrance Newman (STILL PLAYING!!)

    See Demarcus Ware

    Here's what will happen

    They'll extend him for 3 more years for cheap, then they'll prorate his hit next year through the life of that extension. We'll still be able to get out from under it basically anytime we want.

    He'll stay 2 more years as depth and basically a player coach.

    lee will probably finish his career with a playoff team like the steelers or patriots at a much lower salary. I think that the cowboys will move on and draft another linebacker in the middle rounds.
