Dallas Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee doesn’t plan on changing the way he plays the game of football to help him keep him from getting injured.
“I’m going to try to play a certain way, play hard,” Lee said Tuesday during the BaD Radio show on 1310 The Ticket [KTCK-AM], via the Dallas Morning news. “I don’t think I would be successful if I didn’t play that way. I’d rather cut a few years off my career and play the right way than go soft and not play right. If injuries come, they come. But I’m going to sellout on the field and try to sellout every game. I think that’s the only way we really can win, if everybody does that.”
Lee isn’t worried about getting a contract extension right now as he enters the final year of his rookie contract.
“I’m just happy to be playing football,” Lee said. “I really don’t think about that stuff. I just want to be on the field, staying healthy. The ultimate goal is to win the Super Bowl. For me, that’s all I think about non-stop, ‘How can I get better as a football player? How can I help my team win? What can I do to make my teammates better so we hopefully can compete for a Super Bowl every year?’ That’s my main concern.”
Hopefully Lee will be able to stay on the field in 2013 because he’s one of the bright young stars on the Cowboys defense. There’s no doubt they’re going to sign him to extension.
