McClain signed a 1-year, $3 million deal with the team that could see the total amount increase to $4 million through incentives. McClain is facing a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy, so his suitors were limited in free agency, leaving the option to stay in Dallas as his best.

According to the latest oddsmakers, the Cowboys are currently listed at 14/1 to win the Super Bowl in 2016. Seattle is the favorite right now with 11/2 odds while both Green Bay and New England each have 7/1 odds.

McClain is coming off his first season with the Cowboys in 2014. He appeared in 13 games and racked up a total of 81 tackles with one sack and two interceptions. The fifth-year linebacker will be expected to play middle linebacker for Dallas next season, moving Sean Lee to the weak side while Anthony Hitchens will take the weak side.
