The Dallas Cowboys are considering signing free-agent linebacker Justin Durant, reports NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo.
Durant previously played for the Cowboys during the 2013 and ’14 seasons.
The Cowboys are in need of a linebacker after Rolando McClain was suspended 10 games for substance abuse.
Durant, 30, has spent nine seasons in the NFL. The linebacker was the second-round draft pick for the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2007. He spent four seasons in Jacksonville before playing for the Detroit Lions, Cowboys and Atlanta Falcons, respectively.
In Durant’s previous two seasons with the Cowboys, he started a total of 12 games and completed a combined 73 tackles in his 16 appearances.
With the Falcons this past season, Durant had a combined 82 tackles in 13 games.
The Cowboys begin training camp on July 29.
