NFL Suspends Cowboys LB Rolando McClain Indefinitely For Substance-Abuse Violation

The NFL announced that they’ve suspended Cowboys LB Rolando McClain indefinitely without pay for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse on Friday.

A few weeks ago, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that McClain was being suspended for another year on top of the 10-game suspension he just served. McClain reportedly missed another drug test and was appealing the suspension.

There are, obviously, doubts now whether McClain will ever play in the NFL again.

The Cowboys McClain on the reserve/did not report list but he could be moved to the reserve/suspended list or waived at some point.

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.
