The Cowboys are considering all options to replace linebacker Sean Lee. Well, not all options. You can count out veteran London Fletcher, who says he’s retired, tweets Ed Werder of ESPN.com. Besides, as Werder notes, his fans in Washington D.C. wouldn’t be too pleased with him if he went to Dallas. More from around the league..
- The union has been looking into the injury suffered by Lee, but there likely won’t be much said about the team’s role in it, writes FOX Sports’ Mike Garafolo. In theory, the union could charge the team with neglect if there were a clear, objective violation like the OTAs running longer than the allotted 90 minutes.
- Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com runs down his list of top coordinators on the rise and the Broncos‘ Adam Gase is at the top. The OC has been the NFL’s “it” guy for some time and even though it’ll be hard for his offense to replicate last season’s performance, he still figures to have tons of options in 2015.
- Newcomer Devin Hester is expected to give the Falcons‘ special teams a big boost, writes D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I think that one thing that I really enjoy at this point in time is the way he’s approaching it,” special teams coordinator Keith Armstrong said. “He’s approaching it like a pro. He’s not approaching it like, ‘hey, I’ve been there before.’ He knows and understands that this is a different team, and he’s working his tail off.”
