Doug Pensinger/Getty Images (IRVING, Texas.) —  The Dallas Cowboys have signed linebacker Sean Lee to a six-year contract extension on Wednesday that will keep him with the team through the 2019 season.

The deal is reportedly worth up to as much as $51 million and includes a $10 million singing bonus.

“I’m extremely excited. I was blessed to be able to be drafted by a great franchise,” the 27-year-old Lee said in a video interview posted on the team’s website. “To have an opportunity to be here a long time and hopefully compete for a Super Bowl is fantastic.”

Lee was selected by the Cowboys in the second round of the 2010 draft out of Penn State, but has yet to play a full NFL season.  He was limited to only six games in 2012 because of a toe injury.  He finished the season with 77 tackles, an interception, and a forced fumble.
