IRVING, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys middle linebacker Sean Lee signed a six-year contract extension Wednesday, a deal that goes through the 2019 season. A story on the teams website Wednesday night said Lees deal is worth about $42 million, but could escalate as high as $51 million depending on different incentives. The guaranteed money is around $16 million. "Im extremely excited. I was blessed to be able to be drafted by a great franchise," Lee said in a video interview posted along with the story. "To have an opportunity to be here a long time and hopefully compete for a Super Bowl is fantastic." Lees agent, Mike McCartney, posted a message on his Twitter account congratulating the linebacker. "Congrats to SEAN LEE for agreeing to a 6 year extension with the (at)dallascowboys", the agent tweeted Wednesday. Lee is going into his fourth NFL season since being a second-round pick from Penn State in 2010. The high-energy linebacker is a key part for the Cowboys in their switch to a 4-3 system under new defensive co-ordinator Monte Kiffin. Lee played only six games last season, when he had 77 tackles before being sidelined by a torn ligament in his right big toe. During his rookie season, Lee played 14 games behind Bradie James and Keith Brooking. He became a full-time starter in 2011 and led the team with 131 tackles, 52 more than any other player, despite playing the second half of the season with a broken left wrist protected by a bulky cast and missing a game because of the injury. Without being specific, Lee said his new contract takes injuries into account. "Ive said I need to find a way to stay on this field, and the contract is extremely fair, where if Im on the field the whole year Ill be able to get paid," he said. "At the same point, if I do have injuries, it protects the Cowboys, and I think thats fantastic, especially with the injuries Ive dealt with in the past." Lee said his goal is to be on the field every game. He was also hampered by injuries during his rookie camp and early in his first season, though he played 14 games without starting. There was also a December 2010 game at Indianapolis where Lee intercepted Peyton Manning twice. He returned one for a touchdown and set up a game-winning field goal in overtime with the other. After signing the deal Wednesday night, Lee said he was already focused on practice the next day. The Cowboys have two preseason games remaining, including Saturday night at home against Cincinnati, before the Sept. 8 opener at home against the New York Giants. "Its great to have it done," he said. "Being able to focus on this year, focus on winning, focus on me becoming a better football player and staying on the field, making sure Im healthy so I can help this team win."

But what about the officials? Every sport has officials and they also have stories about hard work and sacrifice but their accomplishments are seldom recognized by anyone outside their inner circle. FRISCO, Texas -- Dak Prescott had no interest in joining fellow rookie Ezekiel Elliott for the Salvation Army kettle jump .The Dallas quarterback is a little more low-key, happy to let his most accurate game as Cowboys quarterback do the talking coming off his worst game as a pro.And now Prescott puts his focus on an NFC East title and the top seed in the conference after once again quieting talk about backup Tony Romo.I think hes shown that he can do what you hope that a quarterback can do, and thats come back from when he didnt play as well as he wanted to play, owner and general manager Jerry Jones said after Sundays 26-20 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.And I think that ought to show you that hes sure not worried about anything thats being said about him. Hes going to go to work and go to town, and we can quit worrying about that kind of stuff.Not that he was worried, but Elliott wont get fined by the NFL for jumping into one of the red kettles beyond the end zone after a short touchdown run.The leagues leading rusher, who was expecting a fine, said on Twitter that he still planned to give money to the Salvation Army, which had a 61 percent increase in donations in the hours after Elliotts creative celebration.The made-for-TV moment overshadowed Prescotts 32-of-36 showing, and his 11th game without an interception against a defense that a week earlier picked off New Orleans Drew Brees three times.I dont really pay attention to the noise, said Prescott , who had 279 yards passing. I couldnt tell you much that was said all week. Thats the only thing in my mind, to respond to last weeks performance. `He said, she said, doesnt affect me.Elliott also overshadowed a Dallas defense that held Tampa Bay to one first down in five possessions in the fourth quarter, when Dallas rallied with three of Dan Baileys four field goals.The Cowboys kept a two-game cushion over New York in the division a week after the Giants ended their 11-gamme winning streak.ddddddddddddInstead of being just one game up on the team that swept them in the regular season, the Cowboys (12-2) are a win or a New York loss or tie from their second division title in three years and their first No. 1 seed since 2007, when Romo led them to a 13-3 record.Dallas finishes the regular season with a Monday night home game against Detroit and a visit to fading Philadelphia.Then its on to the playoffs for Prescott, who is set to become the first rookie quarterback to start in the postseason for Dallas.Hes someone whos handled every situation hes come across since hes been with us very, very well, coach Jason Garrett said.Hes handled success really well, hes handled adversity. Adversities within games, adversities from week to week. Hes just the same guy.Elliott wasnt really worried about his road roommate after Prescott completed less than 50 percent of his passes and looked generally uncomfortable in a 10-7 loss to the Giants, the only team to beat Dallas this season.While Prescott didnt have a touchdown pass, one of his best throws against the Bucs came on the run when he hit Brice Butler in stride on the sideline at the 2.It set up Prescotts sixth rushing touchdown of the season, breaking Don Merediths 50-year-old franchise record.Thats the type of athlete he is, said Elliott, who has 1,551 yards rushing. Thats the type of competitor he is.Game notes DE Randy Gregory is eligible to practice and play this week after serving a 14-game suspension for violating the NFLs substance-abuse policy.
