The Dallas Cowboys have re-signed linebacker Rolando McClain to a one-year deal. McClain will be paid $5 million for the 2016 season.

McClain has started 23 games with the Cowboys over the past two seasons. He missed four-games last season after violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.

He was fourth on the team with 80 tackles last season. He also had two sacks and an interception returned for a touchdown.

They’ve managed to get more out of McClain than the Baltimore Ravens and the Oakland Raiders, his two previous teams. With it being just a one-year deal, there’s no risk involved for the Cowboys.

McClain was previously a No. 8 overall pick and retired from football at 23-years-old after a short-lived stint with the Ravens. He then came back with the Oakland Raiders in 2010.

With McClain staying, it gives fellow linebacker Sean Lee more space to make plays from the outside.

In his NFL career, he has 407 tackles, 9.5 sacks and a safety in his career. He also has 26 pass deflections, four interceptions – including one interception returned for a touchdown. He also had two forced fumbles.

After returning in Week 5 following his suspension, McClain had two games in which he had 12 tackles – in Week 12 against the Carolina Panthers and Week 17 against the Washington Redskins. He had a sack against the New England Patriots in Week 5 and the other against the Buffalo Bills in Week 16.
