Ex-Ravens LB Rolando McClain Comes Out Of Retirement, Dealt To Cowboys

NFL: Detroit Lions at Oakland RaidersIRVING, Texas — The Dallas Cowboys have acquired the rights to former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Rolando McClain and are placing Sean Lee on season-ending injured reserve with a torn knee ligament.

The team reported on its website Tuesday that it also would send a sixth-round pick in next year’s draft to the Ravens while getting a seventh-round pick in return.

McClain was the eighth overall pick by Oakland in 2010, but off-the-field issues, including multiple arrests, shortened his career. He has been retired and hasn’t played since 2012.

McClain, who turns 25 this month, has 173 tackles and 6.5 sacks in 41 career games over three seasons.

Lee tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in the first offseason practice.
