Dallas Cowboys linebacker Ronaldo McClain’s suspension was upgraded. Originally, it was thought that he was going to be hit with a four-game fine.

The fine meant that he would have failed three drug tests. But since this is his fourth failed test, that triggered the suspension.

McClain can’t stay out of trouble, even though this is his first league-imposed suspension. Yet, word is, it would have been his second had he not “retired” in May 2013.

With the Cowboys, he had a renaissance, but is also dealing with a knee scope that will cost him time, too. However, since he’s going to miss the first four games, he’ll have enough time to fully heal.

This month, he’ll turn 26-years-old. But with his continued issues, he’s only one more strike from being out of the league.

The league is not playing around anymore following the fallout from the Ray Rice suspension, then lifetime ban.
However, Rice would have that overturned, yet no teams have been knocking down his door to sign the free agent back.

The NFL has given players indefinite suspensions, like they have down with Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon. If McClain keeps it up, he’ll be the next with no future of a return to the game that he loves.
