I've always thought he was a quality player and probably in the top-3 of Cowboys defensive players with Ware/Carr. He does tend to get injured so there should be contact language regarding serious injuries.

Edit: Just saw the numbers, wow that's a pay-out. Wonder how their salary cap will look like next year.

Thats alot of money for a guy who has had ONE great FULL season and has trouble staying in the field.

If the guarnateed money is relatively low, then its not a big deal. If its in the upwards of $20 mil...thats a joke.

Remember guys, just like with the huge QB contracts this offseason (Flacco, Ryan), focus on the guaranteed cash over the life of the deal, not the overall number for x amount of years. In this particular case:

That's just it isn't it? He's had only 1 year of a full season. Good thing they have that contact language where he has to play 80% of his snaps to see those escalators but that's still a lot of guaranteed money.

Sean Lee really still this under rated outside of Cowboys fans? I thought he'd finally broken out. Guess the NFL is going to be in for a surprise this year. Laughing

Yeah, that's a nice chunk of change.

So 80% of snaps, eh?

Wonder if the team might limit him towards the end of seasons on passing downs to perhaps save a little money...

I think the player's union would be all over that. Would be a disaster in my opinion.
