Sean Lee should be a no-doubt captain
|Cowboys LB Sean Lee dishes on his training camp battle with RB DeMarco Murray, playing under Jason Garrett, anticipating the start of the season and more. |
So when Garrett tabbed the captains for Monday’s preseason opener at Oakland, it was no surprise when he looked to Tony Romo, Jason Witten and DeMarcus Ware. Nor was it a surprise that he elected Danny McCray as the special teams captain after McCray has led that unit in tackles the last two seasons.
The biggest no-brainer might have been Sean Lee.
“There are a lot of good players on this defense and it’s an honor to be out there representing the defense,” Lee said. “We’ve got guys like Jay Ratliff and a few guys not playing that could fill that spot, so it’s definitely an honor.”
The players vote for team captains before the Sept. 5 season opener against the New York Giants. It would be a shock if Lee is not elected.
