He wanted his teammates to count on him. But he didn't necessarily want to be viewed as the guy to come in here and play at a Superman (level) well, I don't mean that. He wants to play at that level but he didn't want to be viewed as that's what's expected of him on every play. That's the role that he had," owner Jerry Jones said.

Cowboys | Rolando McClain may not cost anything

Wed, 02 Jul 2014 11:17:55 -0700

Dallas Cowboys LB Rolando McClain, who was recently acquired from the Baltimore Ravens, could end up costing the team nothing. According to sources, if McClain is not on the team's 46-man roster for three games or 53-man roster for five games this season, Baltimore will not receive any compensation. The deal currently mandates that Dallas gives its 2016 seventh-round pick to Baltimore if McClain does meet those criteria. Additionally, if McClain plays half of the defensive snaps this year, the Ravens will receive the Cowboys' 2015 sixth-round pick and the Cowboys will receive Baltimore's 2015 seventh-round pick. McClain did not receive any guaranteed money in his one-year contract with the Cowboys.

Ravens | Rolando McClain retiring from NFL

Wed, 15 May 2013 10:11:15 -0700

Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome announced Ravens LB Rolando McClain, 23, has informed the team he is retiring. Baltimore has placed McClain on the Reserve/Retired list.

Fantasy Tip: This is a curious decision, especially for such a young player, but McClain has been embroiled in off-the-field issues and may need time away from football to straighten out his life. It would not be surprising to see him make a comeback attempt down the line. He projected as a reserve for the Ravens, so this move shouldn't affect their fantasy value as a low-end No. 1 defensive team.
