The Cowboys took a flier on Rolando McClain last year when nobody wanted him.

And after a solid season as an injury replacement, the twice-retired linebacker has found some interest.

According to Todd Archer and Field Yates of ESPN, McClain is visiting the Patriots today.

The Cowboys had expressed some degree of interest in bringing him back, but as with most matters this offseason, weren’t eager to overspend to keep him.

McClain’s facing a four-game fine for violating the league’s substance abuse policy, but no suspension. But with that hanging over his head and his off-field adventures throughout his career, it’s natural that the market for him has been slow, regardless his play last year.
