NFL via Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The Dallas Cowboys are so desperate for defensive help, they’ve acquired now un-retired linebacker Rolando McClain from the Baltimore Ravens.
Dallas sent Baltimore a 2015 sixth-round pick while Baltimore will also send over a 2015 seventh-round pick.
McClain retired in April because he claimed he had lost his passion for football. His agent, Pat Dye, thinks McClain can resurrect his career in Dallas with the recent injury to starter Sean Lee.
“I see and Rolando sees the Dallas situation as a great opportunity given Sean’s injury and you’re talking about a great franchise and a great organization,” Dye said. “I’ve described to any of the clients we’ve had through the years there, Emmitt Smith, Dexter Coakley, DeMarcus Ware, Marcus Spears, Keith Brooking, DeMarco Murray, that playing for the Cowboys in football is kind of like playing for the Yankees in baseball. Just an iconic franchise.
The 24-year-old McClain was the eighth overall pick by the Oakland Raiders back in the 2010 Draft out of Alabama.

NFL via Getty Images(IRVING, Texas) — Dallas Cowboys acquired linebacker Rolando McClain in a trade with the Baltimore Ravens on Tuesday. Dallas sent a 2015 sixth-round pick to Baltimore in return for McClain and Baltimore’s 2015 seventh-round pick.
McClain was selected out of Alabama with the eighth overall pick by the Raiders in 2010. He eventually was released by the Raiders after multiple arrests and other off-field issues.
McClain signed with the Ravens in 2013 but retired before playing a game. The NFL reinstated McClain in March 2014 after the linebacker communicated that he wanted to play, but McClain decided to retire again soon after. But again the itch to play came back again, and McClain was officially taken off the reserve/ retired list Tuesday.
The addition of McClain helps the Cowboys replace linebacker Sean Lee, who tore his ACL and is expected to miss the entire 2014 season.
The 24-year-old McClain has played in 41 NFL games. During that time, he had 175 tackles, 6.5 sacks and 17 passes defended.

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Dallas Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee was told on Tuesday that he tore his left ACL and will probably miss the entire 2014 season, according to ESPN’s Ed Werder.
Lee was hurt during the team’s first organized activity workout when he was blocked to the ground by offensive lineman Zack Martin. Lee needed to be helped to the locker room by the members of the Cowboys’ training staff.
Lee had an MRI Tuesday and while the Cowboys haven’t made an official statement, ESPN says Lee was told the MRI confirmed the tear in his anterior cruciate ligament in the left knee.
This isn’t the first time Lee tore an ACL. In 2008, while at Penn State, Lee tore his right ACL and in 2009 he partially tore his left ACL.
“Sean has had to deal with injuries throughout college and also here in the NFL,” Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett. “He really does everything he can to get himself ready to play. Unfortunately, he had to deal with a few of those things, but he’s as mentally tough as an individual I’ve ever been around. Whatever the circumstances are, he always puts his best foot forward and strives to be his best. I don’t anticipate this being any different.”
The 27-year-old Lee has played in 46 games during four seasons with the Cowboys. During that time Lee has compiled 193 tackles, 11 interceptions, and two forced fumbles.

Austin provides the Browns with depth, which could be needed if star receiver Josh Gordon is suspended.

For his eight-year NFL career, Austin has 301 catches for 4,481 yards and 34 touchdowns.
The Browns agreed to terms with receiver Earl Bennett Thursday. He and Austin join Greg Little, Andrew Hawkins, Nate Burleson and Travis Benjamin as part of the Browns’ receiving corps.
