OXNARD, Calif. — Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee jokingly said he might have to give his friend Barry Church a call.
That was Lee’s response when he was told that Church — the former Cowboys safety — had said earlier in the week that his new team Jacksonville “has a lot more talent” on defense than Dallas.
“They have more talent? Well, that’s because he’s in Jacksonville right now,” Lee said. “Of course he’s going to say that. I might have to call him.”
Lee said Church, who had been a defensive captain with the Cowboys, will he hard to replace. Church spent his first seven seasons with the Cowboys before he left this offseason as a free agent and signed a four-year, $26 million deal with the Jaguars.
“Barry and I came in together. We’re both from Pittsburgh,” Lee said. “I’m very close to him. A guy like Byron [Jones] and Jeff Heath, they’re going to have to step up because Barry was an incredible player for us. He was a leader for us, a play-maker.”
