Dallas Cowboys Trade for LB Rolando McClain

The Baltimore Ravens have traded LB Rolando McClain to the Dallas Cowboys, per Adam Schefter. The Cowboys will receive McClain and the Ravens 7th round selection for the Cowboys 6th round selection in the 2015 draft.

McClain just recently retired from football again. Here were his comments from his retirement in a text he sent to ESPN:

“I gotta follow my heart. It ain’t football. If football made me complete I would play. But whenever I think of it my heart pulls me away from whatever reason. … This means I’m done.”

It seems that the Cowboys know something different or this is like a trade that fools try to pull in fantasy football. People trading offering up injured players hoping that the GM has no idea that they went down. I guess that could have happened here with the Cowboys.

The Cowboys are looking for someone to fill their hole at the middle linebacker spot with Sean Lee going down with a season ending injury. McClain would get the opportunity to start in the middle of the defense if he came back. Will he come back?
