    Pringles, sprite and dip could be three of the worst things you could put in your body...

    Wonderful. You'd be a big help. Maybe they'll pick you to mentor him

    In a strange but vague way you makes sense. LOL, not really. Never half made sense but your parrott-like responses are fun. LOL not really. But let me say this: . . . um, no.:)

    No other way to put it. This is a no lose situation for the Cowboys even the pick be it a 6th or a 7th would all depend on making the team and amount of playing time. I hope the guy is ready to come in and take advantage of this chance if so then we not only add a player with starting ability we add depth to a needed position. If things do not work out he goes his way and the Cowboys move on with the guys we have and continue to look to churn the roster.

    He had his shot at redemption with the ravens, I don't think he had an Epiphany since then but we will see.

    I don't remember Tyron story. This reminds how Dez's career could have spriral out of control. Addict mom, leaching friends, etc. Maybe Dez, can inspire. Pulling for this guy, particulary considering the pressing need at MLB.

    When he signed with them he had done nothing to correct his path. Since them he has had a year away, returned to school to finish his degree, disassociated himself with family and friends that were taking him down the wrong path, and reconnected with Nick Saban who initiated the idea of him coming to Dallas by contacting Garrett. I'd say that qualifies as a valid attempt to correct your life and move forward in a positive way. I don't expect much from this situation but I do have hope that he is now on the right path and will contribute at some level. If not, who cares. They will have lost nothing.

    McClain's story is like Dez's, Tyron's, and Micheal Orr's all wrapped up in one.

    I'm already rooting for the guy since he has a star but this article made him one of the players I'm most rooting for. Go McClain!
