The Baltimore Ravens have traded linebacker Rolando McClain to the Dallas Cowboys, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
McClain retired before the 2013 season after signing with Baltimore, but announced he would be returning to the team in March of this year only to retire again a month later. Schefter reports that McClain is willing to play for the Cowboys next season.
Dallas sent a sixth round pick to the Ravens in return for McClain and a seventh round pick.
McClain's NFL career has been plagued by legal trouble, with four arrests between 2011 and 2013. In 2012, he was found guilty on misdemeanor charges of assault and discharging a firearm in his hometown of Decatur, Ala.
