In previous stops in the NFL, McClain retired from football twice, racked up a laundry list of arrests, and was suspended for conduct detrimental to the team. The Cowboys traded for McClain last offseason, and got unexpectedly good play from him. But, with any player with a long history of character issues, they're likely to continue, and the Cowboys will be without McClain in their first four game against quality offenses in the Giants, Eagles, Falcons, and Saints.

"Or going full-speed practices on a Saturday when that's kind of the walkthrough day getting ready for the big game on Sunday," added Willie McGinest. "And I agree. A lot of times you are dealing with individual franchises. You've got to look at these players like individual franchises with opinions, and a lot of them are outspoken and have opinions that they want to talk about and say. If you come in with that type of mentality, then a lot of players are going to be like, 'Hold on. What have you done? How much experience have you had?' If you want a player to buy in, you've got to be able to communicate. Everybody is not just going to fall in line."

Brees has passed for at least 4,300 yards in each of his nine seasons in New Orleans. He led the league with 4,952 last year after three straight 5,000-yard campaigns. However, Brees will have to survive without his top two pass catchers from last season - tight end Jimmy Graham, who was traded to Seattle, and wide receiver Kenny Stills, who was shipped to Miami. Expect 2014 first-round pick at wide receiver Brandin Cooks to become the go-to weapon for Brees.
