Rolando McClain‘s offseason seems to be going from bad to worse.
According to Bleacher Report’s Jason Cole, McClain has gained so many weight this offseason that it will be “almost impossible” for him to ever play for a Cowboys again. According to Cole, McClain is bending on a “purple drank,” that has caused him to benefit some critical weight. (For those unknown with a “purple drank,” it’s a multiple of a codeine-based cough syrup and a sweetened splash like Sprite. JaMarcus Russell was famously another fan of it.)
The linebacker is reportedly about 40 pounds overweight.
For a final few months, a Cowboys haven’t been happy with McClain, who skipped each singular one of a team’s offseason workouts, solely for a 3 days of imperative minicamp he was compulsory to attend in June.
In box you’re wondering, here’s what McClain looked like a few months ago.
McClain’s standing with a group has usually gotten murkier over a past 6 weeks. Back on Jun 30, a linebacker was strike with a 10-game cessation for violating a NFL’s piece abuse policy.
Although no one in Dallas has mentioned a “purple drank” by name, owners Jerry Jones did acknowledge in Jul that McClain is carrying “dependency issues.”
“Disappointed is a word,” Jones pronounced of McClain in July. “It is a approval that these dependency issues are a formidable thing to address. We are unapproachable of all that we’ve gotten from Rolando. His aptitude as a football actor is roughly unrivalled as one of a best that I’ve seen. We all contend it’s such a waste, though with us, meaningful him, we’ve got a best that he’s finished in pro football.”
Jones has insisted that a group won’t cut him, notwithstanding a fact that a linebacker has turn totally unreliable. McClain was placed on a reserved/did not news list after he didn’t uncover adult for a opening of Cowboys training stay final week.
The Cowboys linebacker has fundamentally been on skinny ice roughly given a day he was comparison No. 8 altogether by a Raiders in a 2010 draft.
Since then, McClain has late twice and been arrested 3 times. McClain’s many new retirement came in Apr 2014 after a really brief offseason army with a Ravens.
After things didn’t work out in Baltimore, a Ravens traded McClain to Dallas in Jul 2014. Although he revitalized his career for a brief time with a Cowboys, things have solemnly regressed.
The 10-game cessation outlines a second time that McClain’s disregarded a NFL’s piece abuse policy. The linebacker was also dangling for 4 games during a 2015 season.
