Falcons agree to terms with defensive tackle Terrell McClain

Falcons agree to terms with defensive tackle Terrell McClain

Released after the draft by the Washington Redskins, McClain opted to join the Atlanta Falcons following his visit with the Cowboys. He broke his right foot during organized team activities (OTAs) as a rookie, which caused him to miss part of training camp. He suffered the injury during workouts at The Star on Thursday with the Cowboys in the second phase of the offseason program.

McClain was that guy for Dallas a few seasons ago, and it stands to reason he could be that player once again along the defensive line.

Before Collins' injury, the Cowboys had already been eyeing more depth at defensive tackle.

In 30 starts of the last two seasons, he has 45 tackles, 7.5 sacks and a forced fumble.

There was a big drop in stopping the run after he left, going from a league-best 83.5 rushing yards allowed per game in 2016 to 104 yards on the ground per game a year ago.

Regardless of where Maliek Collins lines up following his rehab, there is another starting DT spot up for grabs in Dallas. A promising nose tackle since signing with the Cowboys just before the 2017 season, Brian Price appeared in only eight games before suffering a season-ending knee injury. Adding McClain, 29, to the mix could provide some nice seasoning to the unit and perhaps help the team get back to stuffing the run. Following the path of David Irving, Ross bounced around with the Texans and Lions as a UDFA in 2017. Collins could have surgery as soon as Friday with the hope he'd be ready by the middle of training camp.
