The Cowboys are signing defensive tackle Terrell McClain to a three-year deal, a source tells Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun (Twitter link). McClain was a restricted free agent for the Texans but they opted against giving him a tender.
McClain is joining the third team in his NFL career but this time he might not have to change addresses. The 25-year-old broke into the league as a rookie with the Panthers and started all 12 games that he appeared in. In his tours of duty with the Texans and Patriots since then, McClain has yet to see another start. In 16 games last season, McClain had eight tackles and one fumble recovery.
