Cowboys Sean Lee Retires
Sad news in Dallas today as Cowboys Linebacker Sean Lee calls it a career.
A 2nd round pick out of Penn State in 2010 and two-time Pro Bowler in 2015 and 2016, Sean Lee amassed 995 tackles in his 11-year career (all with the Cowboys), 14 interceptions, 2 forced fumbles, and 4 sacks.
Injuries no doubt seem to be the main cause in Lee calling it a career, which he admits to ESPN.
“To say the injuries were frustrating would be an understatement, but the support I received through them all was humbling and the lessons I learned battling adversity will last a lifetime. There are always regrets, but I’m proud of what I was able to accomplish and I leave this game grateful.” He tells ESPN.
Some of his injuries included, core, toe, neck, knee, wrist and multiple concussions, tore his ACL in 2014, and only played in 9 games in his final season.
Sean Lee penned a letter on his way out.
