Rolando McClain To Be Suspended 10 Games

Jun 30, 2016 4:56 PM

Rolando McClain will be suspended for the season's first 10 games for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, according to multiple sources.

The Dallas Cowboys linebacker was suspended the first four games of last season for violating the policy.

Dallas re-signed McClain to a one-year deal worth up to $5 million in March.

He is set to receive a $1.25 million base salary and could earn $125,000 for each game he is on the 46-man roster, maxing out at $42 million. He also has $1 million in play-time incentives.

Alfred Morris Trying To Seize Opportunity With Cowboys

Jun 23, 2016 10:19 AM

Alfred Morris signed a two-year, $3.5 million deal with the Dallas Cowboys to compete for the starting running back job with Darren McFadden.

But Morris' future with the Cowboys became uncertain after the team drafted Ezekiel Elliott fourth overall. 

With McFadden breaking his elbow and out three months, Morris will have an improved opportunity to win a spot on the Cowboys' roster.

“You never want anyone to get hurt; I haven’t thought about it as an opportunity because I thought the coaches did a good job splitting our reps and giving everybody an opportunity to showcase what they can do,” Morris said. “With him gone, it doesn’t change much honestly.

“What it does change is that we don’t have our leader in the room -- that savvy vet that’s been doing it for quite some time.”

Morris must improve his grasp of the playbook.

“I feel like they jumbled three or four playbook together, so I’m starting to get it,” Morris said. “I want to get to the point, where I can play a little faster without having to think.

“I have a lot to learn [because] a lot has been thrown at us so I’m studying at home, studying between meetings and things like that.

“The hardest aspect is the protections. You can run the ball and catch the ball, but if you can’t protect the franchise [Tony Romo], then you’re no good to them. You have to be able to cover every scenario, because if you can’t, you’ll find yourself on the bench real fast.”

Darren McFadden Ready To Compete With Ezekiel Elliott

Jun 13, 2016 9:46 AM

Darren McFadden is ready to compete with first-round pick Ezekiel Elliott for carries with the Dallas Cowboys.

"They picked him high, he's going to play and get his touches," McFadden said. "I know what that's like. But there's a role for all of us. We're not afraid of competition and I know he'll bring out the best in us and we'll bring out the best in him."

McFadden finished fourth in the NFL with 1,089 rushing yards last season.

The Cowboys also signed Alfred Morris this offseason, but he figures to sit third on the depth chart.

Darren McFadden Claims Former Financial Planner Mishandled $15M

Jun 9, 2016 2:51 PM

Darren McFadden has sued his longtime business manager, saying he misappropriated and mishandled money throughout his career, including $3 million lost in a bitcoin business venture.

The $15 million lawsuit was filed against Michael Vick of Mabelvale, Arkansas, and 10 unknown others named only as "Doe."

Vick is not the former NFL quarterback.

McFadden's lawsuit said that two days after his 2008 debut with the Oakland Raiders, Vick used fraudulent documents to gain power of attorney and later fabricated fictitious financial records to hide what he was doing.
