    If the price is right, Cowboys should keep Sean Lee

    [​IMG]

    At 33 in July, with an injury history and now in a part-time role, there is no doubt that Sean Lee's deal would have to be reworked to stay in Dallas.

    Sean Lee should not want to be a NFL starter anymore.

    The smart move would be a backup in Dallas and better his chances of staying healthy with less playing time.

    Pay cut and move him to SAM.

    I can't solve all the Cowboys problems for them, geez.

    Why not just make him the strong side LB and he'll get 15-25 snaps a game? At a reduced rate of course.

    Better than him accomplishing that with the other PA team.

    Sure. Find a way to cut that $10MM cap hit by 50% or more and we can keep him around.

    if we keep him, does he become a progress stopper for another young lb? he plays like someone who's worried about being injured again. it was hard to watch his last couple of efforts after seeing him be such a star for so long. time for sean to go.

    Pitt is done.

    Looks like Bell and Brown both are leaving.

    Cleveland has 84 mill in cap space and a very talented defense.

    Sean Lee can still do more by instinct than most young linebackers trying to read and react. He is still a leader on the field and off as well. A needed element on this youthful team.

    Sean isn't playing anywhere else.

    He will do the honorable thing and take a step back, both in role and pay.

    Hopefully he'll take a pay cut and a backup role. I can see him being valuable in the playoffs, that's when the old guys usually step it up.

    He can't play SAM..... he is too small and fragile

    He was moved to WILL years ago to protect him

    Backup LBs need to play STs and that will be a problem

    I would cut his salary down to 2m and let him try to earn his job back

    I don’t care about a pay cut
    We aren’t spending all we have so it really doesn’t matter
    I’d like to keep him to tutor the young guys, play the SLB and depth
    But he has to decide if he wants that role and if he’s ready to hang it up after next year
    If he wants to play a few more years and thinks he can still be a full time starter then I’d let him chase that dream
    I don’t think at this point it’s in his best interest to chase that dream but I get it’s hard to walk away from something you’ve dreamed of your whole life

    Sean Lee is 6'2" and 245.
    Last year's staring SAM was Damien Wilson is 6'0" 245.

    Fragile? We all know that. But anything Damien Wilson can do, Sean Lee can do better.

    That part is definitely true.

    But you're keeping him as a 2-down SAM and insurance if Jaylon or LVE got hurt. He's a starter and valuable reserve in that scenario.

    Tyron needed to get the back worked on. He will likely get the Romo treatment for the rest of his career. Extra day of rest and treatment.

    SLee never held up the rigors of the MIKE and the SAM is even rougher

    He isn't big or sturdy enough....... DWilson obviously has stood up to 4 years of SAM
