Dallas Cowboys’ Lawrence, McClain Land Lengthy Suspensions
The terrors of the 2015 season are spilling into the off-season for the Dallas Cowboys.
Thursday, the Cowboys learned their leader in sacks in ’15, DeMarcus Lawrence, will indeed be suspended for the first four games of next season. Lawrence had his appeal denied and will join 2015 2nd round pick Randy Gregory on the shelf for the first four games of 2016 per the NFL’s substance abuse policy.
It doesn't stop there.
A few hours after the verdict was released on Lawrence, it was announced that Cowboys linebacker Rolando McClain will be suspended for 10 games next season thanks to his second violation of the leagues substance abuse policy in the last two seasons.
McClain has already made news this off-season skipping out on the Cowboys off-season OTA's while he tended to a family situation in Alabama.
