McClain reportedly wants to return to the team, but it’s not clear if the Cowboys want to have him back. Publicly, at least, owner Jerry Jones has said that he wants the linebacker to rejoin the club. Of course, that’s easy to say when McClain is a long way from being reinstated to the league.

It should be noted that since McClain has been on the reserve/did not report list this season, it’s possible his one-year Cowboys deal could be applied to 2017. But, the Cowboys might not want to pursue that if McClain is not sober.

In 2015, McClain graded out as Pro Football Focus’ No. 28 linebacker. In his suspension-shortened season, McClain recorded 80 total tackles, two sacks, and three pass deflections.

    He seems like a fine young man. It’s not his fault, it’s everyone else’s.

    It’d be a shame for Dallas to have him back. The team is supposedly “Family”, as the players themselves say. Why cut one of your own for this fool. No team will welcome him at this point. No One!

      Well if he was producing like he was 2 seasons ago I would disagree with you. But it looks like he and Gregory will both be out of the league for good soon.

    at least he’ll still get an NFC championship ring if they choose to make them

      Doubt they would give him anything. They didn’t even give him a locker in training camp.

    What a zero, didnt they have a wife beater and still have a guy that punched his grandma? I say keep him, the team deserves him
