 Draft Scout *Rolando McClain News
07/30/15 - LB Rolando McClain (knee) failed his physical with the Cowboys Thursday (July 30) and opened training camp on the physically unable to perform list. He still counts against the 90-man roster.
07/06/15 - LB Rolando McClain has been suspended by the NFL for the first four games of the 2015 season for violating the policy on substances of abuse. McClain missed voluntary OTA workouts this spring while rehabbing a knee injury before reporting to the Cowboys for minicamp. He came to Dallas last July in a trade with the Baltimore Ravens and finished the 2014 season with 108 tackles despite missing four games. The 25-year-old McClain will be eligible to return to the active roster after a Week 4 game against the New Orleans Saints. "I apologize to my family, the Cowboys organization, my teammates and Cowboys fans for my mistake," McClain said in a statement. "I will not break the rules of my profession in the future, and I regret my error. I look forward to returning to the field on Week 5, when I hope to help my team beat the Patriots."
06/16/15 - LB Rolando McClain showed up for the mandatory minicamp after missing the OTAs while he was in Alabama rehabbing from offseason knee surgery. McClain would have been fined if he had not reported for minicamp. The Cowboys are still being cautious with his knee. He did some light walk-through stuff, but did not do any team or individual drills. Garrett also expressed optimism that McClain will be a full-go when training camp starts late next month in Oxnard, Calif. "I don't want to make any projections," Garrett said, "but certainly he's made a lot of progress and we feel good about where he is." Garrett believes McClain will build on last season's campaign when he returned to the game after sitting out the 2013 season. McClain played in 13 regular-season games for the Cowboys, racking up 108 tackles with nine tackles for loss, five quarterback pressures and five passes defensed. "We tried to create an environment for him to come be his best," Garrett said. "And I think he just embraced the opportunity. He was at the right place in his life to focus on football again."
04/01/15 - LB Rolando McClain is returning to the Cowboys on a one-year, $3 million deal that will lead to some shuffling on the second level of their defense. McClain, 25, resurrected his career in 2014, playing 13 games and recording 108 tackles for the Cowboys. He is facing a four-game fine for a substance-abuse violation. Another positive test would mean a four-game suspension. McClain, who had a competing offer from the New England Patriots, can earn another $1 million in incentives. Bringing him back likely causes a ripple effect that includes former Pro Bowl selection Sean Lee sliding to weak-side linebacker. Lee missed all of last season and was dogged by injuries in 2013. McClain missed games with knee and hamstring injuries and the regular-season finale due to illness. The Cowboys felt his nagging injuries were a byproduct of the former eighth overall pick getting back into NFL shape.
03/04/15 - LB Rolando McClain will be pursued hard in free agency. He brought toughness and physicality to the defense. It proved to be good fit for him in his return to the game. How much will that factor when other teams start offering more money?
