Source: Cowboys re-sign Rolando McClain to one-year, $3 million deal

The Dallas Cowboys have retained middle linebacker Rolando McClain on a one-year deal with  a $3 million base salary and $1 million in playtime incentives. McClain visited the New England Patriots and was given a contract offer. However, he preferred the Cowboys.
McClain had 81 tackles and one sack last season.
McClain, 25, is being fined four game checks to start the season for violating the NFL substance-abuse policy with a failed drug test.
McClain came out of retirement to join the Cowboys after being traded from the Baltimore Ravens.
McClain finished his season with concussions and had groin and knee injuries.
McClain finished tied for second in NFL Comeback Player of the Year voting. The award was won by New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski.
McClain is a former Oakland Raiders first-round draft pick from Alabama.
He was a consensus All-American who won the Butkus Award for the Crimson Tide.
