Jerry Jones Says Cap Implications Part Of Reason For Not Moving On From Rolando McClain

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Monday in an interview with NFL Network that cap implications are among the reasons why they haven’t cut LB Rolando McClain following his recent 10-game suspension.

However, Jones also said that “we haven’t seen the last of Rolando McClain.”

“There’s a lot of reasons why we don’t cut him: cap, many reasons,” Jones continued. “But the bottom line is, I’d like to be positive about this and think that we haven’t seen the last of Rolando McClain.”

This comes just a few days after Charean Williams of the Star- Telegram reported that many within the Cowboys’ organization would prefer for the team to just cut ties with McClain and move on.

Williams added that financial implications were likely part of the reason why McClain was still on the Cowboy’s roster.

The issues with McClain go beyond his recent suspension, considering that many were not pleased his decision to not show up for voluntary workouts.

McClain, 27, is a former first-round pick of the Raiders back in 2010. He spent three years in Oakland before taking a year off and later signing with the Ravens.

Baltimore traded McClain to the Cowboys in 2014, and Dallas elected to bring him back on a one-year, $5 million contract back in March.

In 2015, McClain recorded 80 tackles, two sacks, an interception returned for a touchdown, and three pass defense.
