He may no longer be a member of the Dallas Cowboys, but Rolando McClain’s ongoing problems are another example of the failure of “Cowboys culture.”
McClain was arrested in Alabama on Friday on charges related to marijuana and an illegal firearm. The arrest comes on the heels of a report that Randy Gregory has failed a 7th drug test, bringing the memories of Dallas’ recent character failures back into the collective consciousness of Cowboys fans.
Why did the Cowboys invest so much time and trust into players like McClain, Gregory, Greg Hardy, and Joseph Randle? Are the Cowboys stubborn, or do they simply have too much faith in a culture they believe can save people from themselves?
On today’s edition of CowboysCast, we talk about how these four players should serve as a guide for the Cowboys when weighing character concerns in the future.
