Left impressed by his improbable 2014 campaign, the Dallas Cowboys want to bring linebacker Rolando McClain back next season. McClain is currently a free agent, but executive vice president Stephen Jones said this week that they’ve been in contact with the former first round pick.
“We’re in talks with him, and we want him back--that’s the best way to say it,” Jones told the team’s official website. “We’ve got to just figure out something that works for both sides.”
After being traded from the Ravens and coming out of retirement to join the Cowboys last year, McClain registered 81 tackles, a sack and two interceptions in 13 games while filling in for the injured Sean Lee at middle linebacker. If he returns, the Cowboys will likely plug him back in to the middle linebacker spot and move Lee to the weak side.
“Rolando really affected some of our games last year. He played well,” Jones said. “We’re certainly in in the midst of trying to get him back on our team.”
