Sean Lee has restructured his contract with the Dallas Cowboys.

Lee was on the verge of being cut by the Cowboys, but he instead cut his $7 million base salary to $3.5 million with the opportunity to earn back the $3.5 million if he meets certain incentives.

Lee is 32 and has struggled to stay healthy for several years. Lee has also been passed by Leighton Vander Esch and Jaylon Smith on the Cowboys' depth chart at linebacker.
