Ding!

DING!

DING!

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner!

Yes, exactly. The team is making an investment in the interception leader for LBers for the past three years. And yet, they are getting insurance just in case the unfortunate may happen.


Which is not Sean Lee. London Fletcher has more for sure. I didn't look beyond that.

In the past three years, Fletcher has had 8. Lee has had 7.

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.


Exactly. Lee is a good MLB but I'm just surprised they paid him that much with him coming off an injury and only one full season as a starter.


lees injuries have all been of the freak variety and none of them are related. This isn't like locking up a guy who has chronic knee or concussion issues.

that, and every game he has played since his rookie year has been at a near all pro level.

he just hasn't played enough games.

this is a great contract for the.cowboys

Another reason was Jerry Jones is looked at as a laughing stock across he league as GM. Over paying for a middle tier line backer who has put together 1 really solid year. Other gm's are just shaking their heads at this stupid extension.

Other GMs are upset the Cowboys didn't try to low-ball a great player and allow him to walk.

Read the fine print instead of making outdated generalizations. This is a deal that will protect the Cowboys from overpaying should Lee continue to miss time due to injury. If he is able to stay healthy, than if anything he will be underpaid.

It doesn't really mean anything though. Same holds true for Amendola...thing is that some people are just more susceptible to injuries than others.

True. And some people go through periods when they are unlucky. Jimmy smith is a prime example.

there have been plenty of players who have had a couple big injuries but managed to have successful careers. If Lee continues to be injured they can easily cut him. That's why its a really solid contract.

It is really going to be fun to come back and revisit this thread about week 6.

Cowboy fans as a whole love the deal, non-Dallas fans as a whole criticize the deal. Sounds about right.

Love Lee. Heart and Soul of the Defense. He and Dez are the future of the team.


Cowboys fans dismiss any valid criticisms of the deal as "hate".

Sounds about right.

'Cause calling this an AlDavis type move or suggesting that Dallas will sit their INT leader on passing downs to save $ are totally valid Rolling Eyes

This is a great signing. Lee will soon be widely recognized as a top 3 inside linebacker.

You're irrationally proud of that statistic. He tied for the team lead in INTs in 2011. That isn't even a good thing. That just highlights how poor your DBs were that year.
