Rolando McClain expected to start at MLB for Dallas


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:32 am ET) The Cowboys appear to be leaning toward using twice-retired linebacker Rolando McClain as their starting middle linebacker in the absence of Sean Lee, who will miss the 2014 season with a torn ACL in his left knee.

The Cowboys are also moving Bruce Carter from weakside to strongside, and Justin Durant will take over as the starting weakside linebacker.

"I think he’s made a lot of progress," head coach Jason Garrett said of McClain, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "Whenever you’re a new player coming into a system, you need to just play in the system. You need to get reps. That’s particularly the case with a position like linebacker where there’s a lot to do in terms of communication and understanding what the whole defense is doing.

"He has a lot of those traits. Coming in, it was a matter of learning what we were asking him to do. He embraced that, and I think he’s going to be a part of that mix at linebacker. He’s demonstrated both in practice and in preseason games that he’s worthy of some kind of an opportunity."


Two key Cowboys back in action Thursday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/21/2014) Both quarterback Tony Romo was back in pads and linebacker Rolando McClain returned to Cowboys practice Thursday after missing the Wednesday session. Romo is set to play Saturday against Miami in the third exhibition game. McClain had been dealing with muscle cramps.

"He has some things that have sidetracked him here for a day or two," Jason Garrett told the Dallas News about McClain. "But obviously, being out at practice playing play after play, day after day matters."

Rolando McClain to stand trial Friday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2014) Cowboys linebacker Rolando McClain will go on trial Friday on charges of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct, reports the Dallas Morning News. McClain asked for a delay so he wouldn't miss training camp, but the Alabama judge turned him down.

The Cowboys acquired McClain on July 1. He has not played since 2012.


Ravens trade LB Rolando McClain to Cowboys


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/1/2014) The Ravens have traded linebacker Rolando McClain to the Cowboys, ESPN reported Tuesday. The Cowboys dealt a sixth-round pick in 2016 for McClain and a seventh-round pick in 2016 from the Ravens. 

McClain had been on the Ravens' reserve/retired list after announcing his retirement back in April but it's believed he's had a change of heart for what would be the second time this offseason. 

Over three seasons McClain has posted 246 total tackles over 41 games with 6.5 sacks, an interception and a forced fumble. 


Rolando McClain back on reserve-retired list


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/23/2014) The Ravens made it official, placing middle linebacker Rolando McClain on the reserve-retired list again, reports the Baltimore Sun.

McClain announced his retirement Monday. It's the second time in the past year that McClain has retired and that the Ravens have designated him on the reserve-retired list.

That means the Ravens retain his rights should he change his mind.


Rolando McClain: I'm done


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/21/2014) Linebacker Rolando McClain is retiring from football again, telling ESPN in a text that football isn't for him

"I gotta follow my heart. It ain't football," McClain wrote. "If football made me complete I would play. But whenever I think of it my heart pulls me away from whatever reason. ... This means I'm done."

McClain reportedly failed a conditioning test in Baltimore when he considered making a comeback. He was reinstated last week but it might have been so he could retire. He never played for the Ravens. 

McClain finishes his three-year NFL career with 246 total tackles over 41 games with 6.5 sacks, an interception and a forced fumble. McClain was originally an eighth-overall selection by the Raiders in 2010, taken just ahead of C.J. Spiller. 


Ravens reinstate Rolando McClain


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Rolando McClain would like to return to Baltimore


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2014) Linebacker Rolando McClain has not played since retiring in 2012, but he has his eyes on making a return to the league. As he told the Carroll County Times, he hopes to return to the Ravens, and has a meeting with general manager Ozzie Newsome Friday about a possible return.

The Ravens retain McClain's rights after he retired following a string of incidents with the law. He plans to be with the team when offseason workouts begin April 21, if Newsome gives him approval. 


Rolando McClain coming out of retirement


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
