Draft Scout Terrell McClain News
08/11/13 - NT Terrell McClain signed with the Texans last season and was on the third team behind Shaun Cody and Earl Mitchell. The Texans were desperate when Cody suffered a back injury during the season. When Cody was healthy, McClain, a third-round pick by Carolina in 2011, remained on the roster and played special teams. Over the last week of camp, McClain began to assert himself in the battle for the backup job. In the victory at Minnesota, he tied for the team lead with five tackles. More important, he had a team-high 2 1/2 sacks. If McClain keeps it up, he'll win the job behind Mitchell and probably become part of the rotation in regular season.
10/29/12 - DT Terrell McClain was signed by Houston to replace David Hunter, a rookie free agent who was lost for the season with a foot injury. This is a great opportunity for McClain because the Texans played Baltimore with only seven defensive linemen who were active. McClain can play defensive tackle or nose tackle.
10/03/12 - DL Terrell McClain was released by the Patriots to make room for linebacker Bobby Carpenter. McClain was signed by the Patriots as a street free agent on Sept. 26. He played in one game with New England. McClain was a third-round pick and started 12 games with the Panthers in 2011 before he was released on Sept. 2.
09/26/12 - DT Terrell McClain was signed by the Patriots Wednesday.
09/03/12 - DT Terrell McClain was cut from the roster to make room for Dwan Edwards. Considering the Panthers used a third-round pick on him in 2011, McClain's release was a surprise. Injuries forced him into a starting job for 12 games last year, and while he wasn't spectacular, he gained experience most teams would see as a positive. But the Panthers cut bait when they saw someone they liked better. "We were looking for a guy that would push for us, and give us a little bit more of that vertical push," coach Ron Rivera explained. "Terrell's a different style player than what we've found in Dwan, so we're pretty excited about that."
