For a 6th and we give them McClain and a 7th. Good trade for both teams IMO.

I think we robbed them to be honest.

Sweet, free pick in the exact middle of the sixth. Not a bad pickup after all that.

So Ozzie got the pick back, that he traded to Cleveland to get Campanaro in this years draft. Nice.

Dallas has been 8-8 the past three seasons, if they do worst and end up in the top ten, it's almost like a 5th round pick for us and say we win the Super Bowl, they gained a UDFA. One positive way to look at it.

Does anyone know what year the picks in the trade are? I assume we sent our 7th in 2015 and we gained Dallas' 6th in 2015. I haven't read any specifics other than a 6th and 7th round picks.

Did he unretire again? I thought I read he had re-retired after coming back for like, three days?

No way.  McClain plans to play and with how weak their ILB core is just the fact that he is playing will make this a good trade for them.

 

We win as well since we upgraded our 7th to a 6th by trading a player from our most talented position who probably would have never seen the field.

 

Great trade for both sides.

It's ok. He'll never see the field in Dallas anyway bc he's so out of football shape it's not even funny. We just traded a 7th rounder for a 6th rounder...

Do what that what you will

I think he kept his butt home and didn't show up for us because he knew he would have to compete with a lot of top level talent at ILB. Dallas doesn't have that talent so he may get some real playing time if he can get it together. He might end up being the best player on their D which ain't really saying much

Apparently he 'fully intends to play this year', sure I've heard that before...
