Linebacker will occupy the Cowboys' thoughts as players report today to training camp in San Antonio.
Inside linebacker Sean Lee, a second-round choice, is the club's only unsigned draft choice. Stephen Jones, chief operating officer and director of player personnel, said he would be "very surprised" if the Cowboys do not work out a deal soon.
Mike McCartney, who represents Lee, could not be reached for comment. McCartney said this week the sides were talking "but nothing is imminent."
Jones said the Cowboys could still "make a move or two" with the roster by Saturday's opening camp practice. If they added a player, it probably would be a linebacker to add depth for camp.
With Lee, the Cowboys have 11 linebackers on the roster, but two will be limited. Stephen Hodge is headed to the physically unable to perform list as he recovers from knee surgery, and the Cowboys plan to be careful with Keith Brooking, at least during the San Antonio portion of camp.
In many rookie only drafts, Sean Lee has been in the top 5 for LBs. Good pick-up for dynasty leagues. Given the amount of LBs on the Dallas roster, playing time will be limited for Lee this season.
