Dick Butkus Visits Cowboys Camp

Updated: Thursday, August 15 2013, 11:50 PM CDT

A year ago, the Cowboys defense ranked 14th worst in the NFL. Therefore, this offseason, Dallas changed defensive schemes and defensive coordinators. But this week, owner Jerry Jones and head coach Jason Garrett really got serious about defense: they brought in Dick Butkus.

Arguably the greatest middle linebacker to ever play the game spent time at Wednesday's Cowboys practice in Oxnard. Butkus, a Hall of Famer from his years with the Bears, had his eyes on one player in particular - Dallas linebacker Sean Lee.


"Yeah, I've been watching him," admitted Butkus. "He's a good one. He's an old school guy I understand. And yeah, he's for real."

Lee was floored by the compliment.

"That's as good as it gets," said Lee. "When you have one of the best, if not the best linebacker of all time, saying that about you. I mean, growing up - when you're a linebacker and you talk about playing tough, hard nosed - everyone says Dick Butkus. So to have that is an unbelievable honor."
