Back in April, former Raiders first-round pick Rolando McClain, who signed with the Ravens last year, came out of retirement ... only change his mind a few days later. Now, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Cowboys have traded for McClain:

Whether McClain has a long-term change of heart is another matter. Two months ago, he sounded like a man at peace with his decision to walk away from football.

"If football made me complete, I would play," McClain told ESPN's Wickersham in a text message. "But whenever I think of it, my heart pulls me away [for] whatever reason"

In three seasons with the Raiders, McClain had 246 tackles and 6.5 sacks, but off-field issues overshadowed any on-field contributions.
