The Cowboys have scheduled a meeting with defensive tackle Terrell McClain, Mike Fisher of 105.3 The Fan tweets. McClain played for the Cowboys from 2014-2016, so the team is already familiar with what he offers.
After McClain was cut by the Redskins last week, Cowboys vice president of player personnel Will McClay indicated that the team would be open to a reunion.
“We’re gonna look at opportunities to improve the team. He had a great run here and if he wants to come back we’ll definitely look at it,” the exec said.
During his time in Dallas, McClain appeared in 30 games and started all 15 of his contests in 2016.
McClain played in 30 games for the Cowboys and started all 15 he played during the 2016 season. That ’16 season represented the best of his career as he put up 39 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles. Last year, however, he graded out as one of the three worst qualified defensive tackles in the league, according to Pro Football Focus. A change of scenery – or, rather, a return to the scenery that suited him best – could help him turn things around.
