Rolando McClain suspended again, this time for 10 games

NFL: Carolina Panthers at Dallas Cowboys Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

It was almost exactly a year ago (July 2) that former Raiders draft pick and current Cowboys headache Rolando McClain issued an apology after being suspended by the league for violating the substance abuse policy.

In his apology statement, he said plainly "I will not break the rules of my profession in the future, and I regret my error.”

So much for that. Today it has been reported he has once again violated the league’s substance abuse policy, which automatically carries with it a 10-game suspension.

This punishment comes on the heels of McClain skipping the Cowboys’ voluntary offseason program for the second straight year. Now we know why.
