Lee’s contract includes a play-time incentive in his contract that requires him to play 80 percent or more of the Cowboys’ defensive snaps this season in order to increase his 2016 base salary by $2 million to $5 million.
As of now, Lee has played in 82.1 percent, but missing Sunday’s game could drop that to 77 percent, assuming the Cowboys run something close to the 66 plays per game they’ve averaged this season.
Dolphins owner Stephen Ross and VP of football operations Mike Tannenbaum took in the Michigan game on Friday, according to Jason Cole.
However, sources tells Cole that there’s “zero chance” of the Dolphins hiring Jim Harbaugh away from Ross’ alma mater.
Cole mentions that if the Lions fire their coaching staff, the Dolphins would be wise to consider their DC Teryl Austin, who has done a great job working with DT Ndamukong Suh in the past.
