The Dallas Cowboys have found a solid franchise middle linebacker in Sean Lee, but he has had a hard time staying on the field the pass two seasons missing a combined 15 games. The idea of moving Lee to the outside in an effort to keep him healthy has been discussed but Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said all those discussions have taken place outside of Valley Ranch and not within the organization.
“We’ve discussed a lot of things and that’s not one of them,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM], via Jon Machota the Dallas Morning News. “To be candid with you, I don’t think that we’re really leaning that way. I think it’s just one of those things where we think we’ve had some tough luck with Sean and I think he’ll overcome that.
“He’s so good in the middle there and leading the way, leading the defense. It’s a natural spot for him to work from. Hopefully, we can keep him there and have the complementary guys around him. If he stays healthy, I know it’ll be a Pro Bowl, if not an All-Pro type year.”
