Sean Lee could move to weakside linebacker next season. That is if the Cowboys are able to re-sign Rolando McClain, who started 12 games at middle linebacker last season.
The Cowboys traded for McClain last summer after Lee tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during the first day of organized team activities. But McClain is a free agent.
“Sean can play any of the spots,” Garrett said. “We will try to figure out who is on the roster, talking about some of these free-agent decisions. Hopefully, we can get our guys back, and we’ll decide where those guys go to help our football team. But Sean has great versatility. He can play the Mike [middle]. He can play the Will [weakside]. He can play Sam [strongside] if we asked him to.”
Veteran linebackers Justin Durant and Bruce Carter also are free agents. Anthony Hitchens started at all three linebacking spots during his rookie season.
