The suspension announced Friday likely ends McClain's career in Dallas and is his third since the end of the 2014 season, his only full season with the Cowboys after reviving his career following a year away from the game. He had a one-year contract this season.
Analysis: The 27-year-old McClain was suspended the first 10 games this season for a substance-abuse violation after sitting the first four games in 2015. McClain was eligible to return for the Thanksgiving game this season, but owner and general manager Jerry Jones said he wouldn't report to the team. Jones declined to be more specific. Oakland took McClain as the eighth overall pick in 2010 out of Alabama.

Now he's facing another ban after reportedly missing a drug test.
Analysis: McClain is expected to be banished for the rest of the season. The league drug-testing protocol requires suspended players or those in the NFL's program for previous offenders to participate in regular tests. McClain did not show up, according to multiple reports.

Analysis: The deal is for one year at $5 million, according to a person with knowledge of the contract who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because terms weren't released. The 2010 top 10 pick by Oakland resurrected his career in Dallas after three disappointing seasons with the Raiders and a year away from football.
