Cowboys bring back linebacker McClain on 1-year contract

IRVING, Texas (AP) - The Cowboys are bringing back linebacker Rolando McClain after the former top 10 pick revived his career with a solid season in Dallas.

The team said on its website Wednesday that McClain had re-signed. The one-year deal is worth $3 million.

McClain had trouble staying on the field last year because of various injuries but still finished second on the team with 108 tackles.

The 25-year-old was drafted eighth overall by Oakland in 2010, but the Raiders dumped him after three disappointing seasons. He ended up in Baltimore, where he retired and twice walked away from the game while skipping the 2013 season.

The Cowboys traded for him last summer after losing Sean Lee to a season-ending knee injury.
