Summary

The Cowboys were able to bring back McClain on yet another one year, "prove-it" deal. The initial plan was to keep McClain at MLB while Sean Lee kicked out to the weak side. However, McClain's four game suspension, means that Lee will likely start the season at MLB. McClain graded out as a top 10 inside linebacker last year and received positive marks against both the run and pass. Additionally, he was top 5 in solo tackle efficiency, registering a tackle on 10.3% of his snaps. But his suspension, along with the return of Sean Lee, puts a damper on his potential which makes him more appealing as a LB5. (July 20)
