Brian Urlacher or Jonathan Vilma as replacements for Sean Lee?

Jonathan Daniel

The Dallas Cowboys are desperate after losing middle linebacker Sean Lee to a season-ending ACL tear last week. There aren't a lot of viable replacements for him on the free agent market.

Jonathan Vilma, Ernie Sims and Pat Angerer are the most notable names on market. Rookie Anthony Hitchens and second-year man DeVonte Hollloman been mentioned as a potential replacement as well.

Ed Werder of ESPN believes they could look to former Chicago Bears great Brian Urlacher:

Urlacher spent all of the 2013 season out of football and on the broadcast booth at FOX Sports. It seems crazy to think he's still able to play football out a level that would make him worthy of a 53-man roster.

Then again, the Cowboys did coax Jon Kitna out of retirement last season.
