Recent reports have stated that the Dallas Cowboys are considering signing star linebacker Sean Lee to a long-term extension this offseason.
Lee is one of the stars on the defensive side of things in Dallas, but has had serious issues staying on the field, spending an unorthodox time off it with injuries.
According to NFL.com’s Albert Breer on Twitter, the two sides have yet to talk a deal:
Also, heard today that there haven't been talks between Cowboys and Sean Lee on an extension, so we'll see where that goes.

The Spin: Nothing to panic about here, Cowboys fans. Talks have not started yet, but there is no real reason to worry. It will be time to start worrying when negotiations hit a snag.
The problem here is simple—Lee is an ultra-talented player and could be one of the best in the league. But he’s failed to play in a full 16-game season yet because of injuries. His agent(s) could want more money than he is worth in that regard.
Negotiations will begin sooner rather than later as both sides would love to get a deal done. No need to hit the panic button just yet.
