Rolando McClain expected to start at MLB for Dallas
by Michael Hurcomb |

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 |

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."

Ravens trade LB Rolando McClain to Cowboys
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

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.
