On Tuesday the Dallas Cowboys acquired the linebacker from the Baltimore Ravens.
McClain had a troubled time in the NFL before signing with the Ravens last season and then abruptly retiring. He came out of his retirement a few weeks ago only to again walk away from the NFL.
The plan for McClain was to finish getting a degree from the University of Alabama but perhaps that has changed. The Cowboys are laughably thin at linebacker meaning that McClain actually has a chance to crack the roster despite reports that he was slow and out of shape when he worked out with the Ravens.
