Could a reunion be in the cards for the Cowboys and McClain?

NFL: Dallas Cowboys at Green Bay Packers Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Sometimes you don’t know you’ll miss someone until they are gone. That may be the case for the Dallas Cowboys and Terrell McClain. The former Cowboys player was recently released by Washington, and possibly could be headed for a reunion with his old team.

McClain left after the 2016 season to play in Washington, who offered him an inflated four-year, $21 million deal. He had one disappointing season where he played out of postion before he was let go after Washington drafted two interior linemen at the end of April.

The Cowboys need a 1-tech player for the rotation, and McClain was able to play well there when he was healthy for the Cowboys. The problem of injury is what kept McClain from really establishing himself in Dallas, although his 2016 season was very productive. The Cowboys run defense suffered last season and they need to improve in that area to be a truly solid defense. Drafting Leighton Vander Esch will help, but they need someone to help keep him clean up front.

Dallas will have competition for his services. He already has two other teams interested.
