The Dallas Cowboys got devastating news late Tuesday night. Dallas will have to field a defense in 2014 that does not include middle linebacker and defensive leader Sean Lee. After tearing his ACL during the Cowboys first organized team activities of the offseason, Lee learned that his latest injury will sideline him for the entire 2014 season.
The Cowboys current linebacker corps includes: Bruce Carter, Justin Durant, Anthony Hitchens (R), DeVonte Holloman, Cameron Lawrence, Orie Lemon, Dontavis Sapp (R), Will Smith (R), Kyle Wilber and Joe Windsor (R).
Although Dallas has depth at the position, their in-house linebackers lack experience. It would make sense that the Cowboys front office has started to comb the free agency list to find some veteran help. Therefore, I’ve complied a list of eight likely free agent candidates who could be signed by Dallas to help fill the void at linebacker left by the injured Lee.
