Who plays more games next season: Rolando McClain or Sean Lee?
Free-agent middle linebacker Jasper Brinkley joined the Cowboys on Thursday. But that doesn’t mean Dallas has changed its mind on Rolando McClain making Valley Ranch his home.
Sean Lee had plans. Not just plans for the Dallas Cowboys 2014 campaign, but also for the team’s trip to London. Once again, those plans have changed.
Cowboys fans have a vision: 2014 middle linebacker Rolando McClain, playing like a Pro Bowler as he is, paired with his predecessor, the injured-for-this-season middle linebacker Sean Lee, playing like the Pro Bowler he is projected to be
It’s obvious the impact that linebacker Rolando McClain is having on the Cowboys defense this season. But it’s intriguing to think what his future might hold alongside Sean Lee.
Rolando McClain is expected to start in Sunday’s opener against San Francisco. The Cowboys apparently have seen enough to believe he’s the replacement for Sean Lee.
The 2014 NFL season has yet to begin, and some of the game’s top players are already suffering from potential serious injuries.
Linebacker Justin Durant is most likely to start in Lee’s place a year after the Cowboys signed him more for depth at linebacker than anything else.
The Cowboys have acquired the rights to former Baltimore linebacker Rolando McClain and are placing Sean Lee on season-ending injured reserve with a torn knee ligament.
Jerry Jones figures the Dallas Cowboys will be better on defense even without linebacker Sean Lee.
The Cowboys continued to maintain that this is essentially a torn ACL. Sources tell us, however, that Lee was informed that the damage sustained could be more serious than that.
Sean Lee’s knee injury in the first Cowboys offseason practice gives Justin Durant a chance to be the starting middle linebacker. But that idea turns the veteran’s stomach.
