McClain, 28, is a former third-round pick of the Carolina Panthers back in 2011. He has bounced around the league with stops with Carolina, Patriots, Texans and most recently the Dallas Cowboys.
Last year, McClain played in 15 games for the Cowboys and recorded 40 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 86 interior defensive lineman out of 127 qualifying players at his position.
