IRVING, Texas – With 53 more games played than any linebacker on the team, it makes sense Justin Durant’s got the first look at middle linebacker.  The Cowboys lost more than a skillful player when Sean Lee went down. They also lost the calming influence of the defensive leader, and in his stead, they’ve had Durant take the majority of snaps from the middle during the offseason.  “I think that I’m just the vet,” Durant said. “I’m the older guy in the room. I was the backup last year at the Mike.”

Durant’s not too quick to declare he’s got the job locked up by any means.
