Falcons agree to terms with Terrell McClain

The Falcons took another step toward restocking their defensive line Friday.

The team announced they had agreed to terms with veteran defensive tackle Terrell McClain.

After he was cut by Washington, he drew significant interest in the market, visiting the 49ers, Dolphins and Cowboys (where he had spent the previous three seasons). But the Falcons made sure his visit there today was his last.

McClain will turn 30 before the start of training camp, and should be a good fit with the Falcons. They lost Dontari Poe and Adrian Clayborn in free agency, but they have some young players up front who needed a bit of help.

He’ll rejoin former Cowboys teammate Jack Crawford in Atlanta, and bolster a Falcons interior which features Grady Jarrett and third-round rookie Deadrin Senat.

  1. Love that the Cowboys didn’t over pay. The past 6 years or so you can see the Garrett influence along with Will Mclay. Jerry’s letting his grips go finally! Haters can’t stand this They just can’t I tell ya!

  2. Guy’s terrible couldn’t crack the skins lineup and they had one of the worst d lines in the league.

  3. Didn’t he spend 3 years under the greatest HC and owner of all time? Wasn’t he good enough for a team that has won 2, yes count em 2 playoff games in the last 25 years? He must be really bad.

  4. Why did Dallas play their starters for a meaningless game on week 17, when the Eagles had already wrapped up the division. Oh, to go 9-7. They won 6-0 against scrubs, but Jerruh thinks 9-7 is better than 8-8…Lol… Should not they have rested these guys to avoid a possible injury? Makes no sense

  5. The Truth says:

    Nobody wants to play under the big top anymore
    Nobody wants to read your negative, full of venom comments anymore.

  6. Terrell wanted to be a starter and get paid accordingly, no one is promised a starting spot in May, and the Cowboys already decided that he is not a long term solution. Good luck to him in Atlanta.

  7. So your calling Nick Foles a scrub? Cause he started that game and our rookie seconday shut him down. And we were missing 7 starters that game as well. Five on defense alone. And I say it again unless your team won the super bowl then your losers as well. Making it to the playoffs mean nothing if you can’t win the ring.

    Cmon man!! Nick Foles played FOUR SERIES that game. What D starters were the Cowboys missing that game? Because Sean Lee played the whole game, as well as their starting DBs. Meanwhile, the WHOLE Eagles defense sat out from mid 2nd quarter on while Prescott, Elliott, Bryant, Witten, etc played the ENTIRE game and it took them until the 12.00 mark of the 4th quarter to score.
