Sean Lee Makes It To The Pro Bowl (As He Should Have All Along)

Think of it as correcting an oversight.

NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Dallas Cowboys
The General gets his due.
Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Every year there are some perceived snubs when the roster for the Pro Bowl comes out, and this time around one of the most obvious ones was the omission of Dallas Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee, who was later rightfully selected as an All Pro. That error has been corrected.

This was a development that was not difficult to see coming. Luke Kuechly finished the year injured, and was not expected to be available. Given the games he missed at the end of the season, it was probably an emotional fan vote that put him in over Lee, and now both of them have received some recognition. Lee will be joining fellow Cowboys Ezekiel Elliott, Dak Prescott, Tyron Smith, Travis Frederick, and Zack Martin, as well as the Dallas coaching staff. We would all have preferred to see them otherwise engaged that week, but since that did not work out, it is good to see the best defensive player on the roster getting this well-deserved recognition. Lee led the Cowboys with 145 tackles this season.
