Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee didn't mince anywords when talking about the situation surroundinng former defensive tackle Jay Ratliff, who was cut last week because of health reasons but now has been cleared medically to play and is soliciting offers from other teams.
There is a sense in the Cowboys front office that Ratliff was not completely truthful about his injury situation and had delayed his return for personal reasons. Lee, one of the defensive captains, said the players have moved on and only want guys who want to be here.
“When it comes to that situation, we’ve moved on,” Lee said on KRLD-FM. “If you don’t want to be here and you don’t want to play with this team, then move on because we have guys who are ready to play, who work extremely hard, who care about this franchise, who care about each other as teammates, and I’d rather go down with guys who want to be here and want to win than win with guys who don’t want to be here.
“I don’t know the whole situation or the details, but I think as teammates, all we care about are each other and about guys who care about winning here, so that’s all we focus on and I think that’s the only thing we need to focus on to help us win.”
