IRVING, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys have acquired the rights to former Baltimore linebacker Rolando McClain and are placing Sean Lee on season-ending injured reserve with a torn knee ligament.

The team reported on its website Tuesday that it also would send a sixth-round pick in next year’s draft to the Ravens while getting a seventh-round pick in return.

McClain was the eighth overall pick by Oakland in 2010, but off-the-field issues, including multiple arrests, shortened his career.

He has been retired and hasn’t played since 2012.

McClain, who turns 25 this month, has 173 tackles and 6 1/2 sacks in 41 career games over three seasons.

Lee tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in the first off-season practice.
