Cowboys’ Sean Lee will play in 2020, even if it isn’t in Dallas
The Dallas Cowboys have quite a few key decisions to make this offseason and one involves Sean Lee. With a month to go until free agency, it appears that Lee will play in 2020, even if it isn’t in Dallas.
Following the 2019 season, some believed that Lee could retire and begin a career in coaching. Instead, the veteran linebacker plans to return for his 11th season in the NFL next season. The exact location of where Lee will play in 2020 remains to be seen.
There was once a time when Lee was a cornerstone of the Cowboys’ defense. But with Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander-Esch on the roster, Lee has become somewhat expendable. However, the Penn State product compiled a decent season in 2019.
Due to Vander-Esch being sidelined with a neck injury in 2019, Lee received 13 starts in the defense. The versatile linebacker would finish the season with 86 tackles, four deflections, and one interception. Above all, Lee would play in all 16 games for the first time in his career.
Following his productive season, Lee is set to become an unrestricted free agent in March. Seeing that the Cowboys have to try to re-sign Dak Prescott, Amari Cooper, Byron Jones, and Robert Quinn, it’s possible that Lee is on his way out.
In July, Lee is going to be turning 34-years-old and is no longer the every-down linebacker he once was. Nevertheless, Lee is interested in seeing what teams are willing to offer him in the open market. After 10 productive seasons with the Cowboys, he could be ending his career elsewhere.
